ITRS Opsview On-premises Documentation

Supported Unicode characters

Overview Copied

Opsview uses the UTF-8 encoding and supports a wide range Unicode characters in most string fields.

Object names will limit to characters categorized as Unicode “Letters” and “Numbers”, while descriptions and other types of data will additionally allow Unicode “Punctuation”, “Symbols” and “Separators”. Notes fields will allow some additional whitespace and formatting characters.


Every field may have individual allowed or disallowed characters or length constraints, which will be reflected in the UI and API responses. There are still select fields that limit to the “Basic Latin” Unicode block (equivalent to ASCII), for example. Additionally, most fields will not allow leading whitespace, and will trim trailing whitespace.
