DataWeave 2.2 is compatible and bundled with Mule 4.2. Standard Support for Mule 4.2 ended on May 2, 2021, and this version of Mule will reach its End of Life on May 2, 2023, when Extended Support ends.

Deployments of new applications to CloudHub that use this version of Mule are no longer allowed. Only in-place updates to applications are permitted.

MuleSoft recommends that you upgrade to the latest version of Mule 4 that is in Standard Support so that your applications run with the latest fixes and security enhancements.

decodeURI(String): String

Decodes the escape sequences (such as %20) in a URI.

The function replaces each escape sequence in the encoded URI with the character that it represents, but does not decode escape sequences that could not have been introduced by encodeURI. The character # is not decoded from escape sequences.


Name Description


The URI to decode.


This example decodes a URI that contains the URL percent encoding %20, which is used for spaces.


%dw 2.0
import * from dw::core::URL
output application/json
  "decodeURI" : decodeURI('http://asd/%20text%20to%20decode%20/text')


  "decodeURI": "http://asd/ text to decode /text"
