How is it possible to decode an encoded string by using the Base 64 Encoder Tool?
Go to Solution.
Go to Solution.
Try the attached macro.
It is a quick go at implementing the Base64 decoder in Alteryx
thank you for your support.
Your macro decode letters. What changes are necessary to decode all characters (like ASCII character set)?
Can you send me some sample and will tune the macro. Just a quick attempt on train this AM think will cope with basic ASCII cases but Unicode beyond it.
Think there might be an issue in the Alteryx Base64 encoder tool
I think it has an issue when encoding over multiple strings. Looking at a simple case
ABC should encode to QUJD
It seems to have a problem is the length of a row is (1 mod 3):
Will throw together an encoder macro like the decoder one
Pushed an Encoder and Decoder macro to the gallery.
Only good for ASCII - will do a unicode one in my .net tools - but think covers the use case we talked over
I believe you can also you the Blob Convert tool.
1) You will encode the text with the Base64 tool
2) Convert the Base64_encoded field to a blob field via the Blob Convert tool
3) Use another Blob Convert tool to convert From a Blob Field
I already got some base 64 code which I need to de code to Unicode or utf-8, is there a way i can do it?

I was wondering have you got a decoder that convert base64 to unicode or utf-8 text?
