URL Encoded Emails

In order for the yum and zypper to pass the correct email address to the authentication protocols on the Software Delivery Repository, email addresses in the *.repo files must be URL encoded. For most email addresses, changing the "@" to "%40" is sufficient. For instance, "john.smith@company.com" would be entered as "john.smith%40company.com" in the *.repo file. You may use the URL encoded values from the list below or use an online tool like URL Decode and Encode to help encode your email address.

    @ = %40      & = %26      / = %2F      ` = %60      space = %20
    ! = %21      ' = %27      = = %3D      { = %7B      , = %2C
    # = %23      * = %2A      ? = %3F      | = %7C      . = .
    $ = %24      + = %2B      ^ = %5E      } = %7D
    % = %25      - = -        _ = _        ~ = ~
