I'm following this tutorial on how to use kql to query against terms.

I've set up a page with a content search web part and in the query builder I've entered this

owstaxIdLocation:GP0|#ad491ed9-c21c-46d9-896c-c0d148957c60

Items tagged "Mumbai" from the example on the tutorial. In the result source there are items tagged with that and they are returned. Good.

Now I want to get fancy and pass the value in a query string parameter. So I change my query builder to

owstaxIdLocation:{Querystring.locationtag}

It kinda seems to work, but if I try and put the GP0!# (or the other prefixes like GPSet|#) it breaks. I tried encoding the param value for example

?tag=GP0%7C%2362417a66-e677-4ede-8823-58cdd764e7e4

Any idea how to include a full term in the query string parameter for use by a CSWP in a KQL query?

You need to pass the value in query string like this:

locationtag=%230TermGUID*

replace TermGUID above with the guid of the Term
