GroupWise REST API

Good morning,
Customer is attempting to use REST to move a GW Resource, the Resource has a "/" symbol in it, for example: my/resource~ when they attempt to perform the move there is an error, which we are assuming is the issue with the "/" is there a way to encapsulate that Resource name such as in single quotes 'my/resource' or double quotes "my/resource"
Thank you for any assistance that can be offered
