String encoding for joiner node in desktop vs. server


I ran into a strange issue, there seems to be a difference in string encoding for the joiner node on a desktop and server.

I need to do a table view as a check for requiered attributes from an uploaded file and this happens:

The server joiner doesn’t like “ö,ä,ü” etc, while the desktop joiner doesn’t mind.

I can think of many workarounds, but is there a way how to convince the server joiner to do it properly?

Where do your data come from that you’re trying to join? Are you using the proper encoding when reading them?

Some context here. Most readers use the system default encoding which is different between, e.g , Windows and linux. If you’re sharing workflows between different machines I’d recommend to use any encoding but default.
