Thanks, Nk

    I think you need to encode the user name since it contains tons of chars not allowed in a querystring :) You could for example use encodeURIComponent: w3schools.com/jsref/jsref_encodeuricomponent.asp Mar 25, 2014 at 8:54
  • encodeURIComponent() solved my problem :) I tried to use encodeURI() but it didn't work. Thanks :D

Name property value (claim format) should be encoded, for example using encodeURIComponent function or as an alternative you could specify UserName property instead:

/_api/Web/SiteUserInfoList/items?$filter=UserName eq '[email protected]'

You need to change the # in the username to %23.
