I have created a task to forward received sms to a server. I read sms body from %SMSRB%. If there is a line break in sms, I will get something like 'test\nnew line'. But this is an invalid string when parsing in JS using JSON.parse. The string need to be processed to 'test\\nnew line'. Could someone provide a method in tasker to process such scenario? Or do I have to process this manually in my JS program before calling JSON.parse? Thanks.

I would use a search/replace action and change \n to \\n.
