I would like to ask if the & symbol in the ticdc sink-uri parameter needs to be escaped. I added safe-mode=false in the sink-uri parameter, but it doesn’t seem to work.
The format of the sink-uri is as follows:
'mysql://xxxx:xxxx@127.0.0.1:4000/?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=utf8&xxxxx
Could you please check if there is any issue with this format?

The format looks fine.

No need to escape.

There is no need to transfer, and it seems that the safe-mode cannot be set.
