Environment variables with special characters not handled correctly?

Jonas Rosland

Hi all,

I am having an issue with an environment variable containing special characters that doesn't seem to picked up correctly by CF.

I run `cf set-env appname WORDPRESS_BEARER 1NNKhb5&Nfw$F(wqbqW&9nSeoonwAYz7#j2M1KKY!QU(Wbs(a)8xwjr6Q$hg(IPqcd` (obviously not my currently correct key) and then use it in this Ruby app: https://gist.github.com/jonasrosland/08b5758eaa9098a81cf8

When I check the output the app complains about the API key being incorrect, when it is, in fact, correct. If I set it manually in the application it works, but that is of course not a good practice. I've also verified that the environment variable does get picked up by the application by adding some logging output to show the API key, but it still won't work. I'm wondering if this is because of the special characters in the environment variable?

Thanks in advance,
Jonas Rosland
