BASE64_DECODE (Expression Function)


The Base64 Decode function (BASE64_DECODE) takes the input of a field value and decodes it using base64. This encoding is designed to make binary data survive transport through transport layers that are not 8-bit clean, such as mail bodies. Base64 encoded data takes about 33% more space than the original data. This function is most commonly used when communicating with a third party system that send values that are base64 encoded.


The Base64 Decode function has one input parameter:

Field Value

Allowed Inputs: field value

The builder can enter one field value. The builder should use the Query Builder to choose a field that contains a value.


The output of the Base64 Decode function is a decoded string comprised of the value from a field that contains a base64 encoded value.
