I am using https://workbench.developerforce.com/restExplorer.php . Trying to add new patient, on URL /services/data/v46.0/sobjects/HealthCloudGA__EhrPatient__c, with POST method, with body like this :

{​ "HealthCloudGA__GivenName1__c" : "Tex",  "HealthCloudGA__FamilyName1__c" : "Willer", 
  "HealthCloudGA__BirthDate__c" : "1853-07-07" }

Upon execution, I get following response : JSON_PARSER_ERROR, message: Unexpected character ('â' (code 226)): was expecting double-quote to start field name at [line:1, column:5]

I have also tried with no data in body (empty curly braces), and I got same result, with mention of same strange character â. It's only when I pass pure "{}" string as body, without any spaces, when request gets handled correctly. Is this a bug in Workbench itsself, or do I miss something ?

  • Once I also have the same issue for one of the name fields. I found one article which says "In JSON specification, it requires the use of double-quotes for field names. To enable Jackson to handle the unquoted field name, add JsonParser.Feature.ALLOW_UNQUOTED_FIELD_NAMES in the ObjectMapper configuration."In JSON, unquoted field names are non-standard and should be avoided. Let me know if this helps. – Pranav Chitrans Nov 27 '19 at 12:43

    Also try validating the JSON here jsonlint.com, because I am getting an Error: Parse error on line 1: { ​ "HealthCloudGA__G --^ Expecting 'STRING', '}', got 'undefined'. when I am pasting your JSON here to validate. – Pranav Chitrans Nov 27 '19 at 12:53
  • You are right, I really had such character in my json, and none of my editors have showed it to me. But jsonlint.com did. Thanks. – Dragan Jovanović Nov 27 '19 at 13:19

Wrapping up as an answer : "In JSON specification, it requires the use of double-quotes for field names. To enable Jackson to handle the unquoted field name, add JsonParser.Feature.ALLOW_UNQUOTED_FIELD_NAMES in the ObjectMapper configuration."In JSON, unquoted field names are non-standard and should be avoided.
