Wrong Passphrase message while using encoded passphrase in script

Hi
I am using private key authentication along with a passphrase in an automated script.
I prepared the connection command from the "Generate Session Code option" after which I replaced the special characters.(Password came encoded from the generated code itself). But still its showing Wrong passphrase.

open sftp://username::Fhjukp%24456@88.120.22.135:8022/ -privatekey="D:\Folder\privatekey.ppk" -hostkey="ssh-rsa 1024 MKA9n3CYF8dY+j9P713bUoWelyJtFdv8gNyuyiuyiuyiu" -passphrase="P%40%3Bq9KWI"
I changed the passphrase from P@;q9KWI to P%40%3Bq9KWI. - Is this correct
What I could be doing wrong here? Appreciate your assistance

Use the literal passphrase in the -passphrase switch. No URL encoding.

Thank you. I was confused with the below statement in the Session log thinking that stored password doesnt work and it is still expecting the entry from keyboard. Can you please confirm that it is really possible to fully automated connection with passphrase embedded in the script file as some of your posts say that it isn't. FYI, I am using Winscp Portable 5.15.1.
Both Passowrd and Passphrase dont need encoding?

2019-09-10 17:06:37.052 Prompt (passphrase, "SSH key passphrase", <no instructions>, "Passphrase for key "rsa-key-20190905": ")

I will use the below command?

open sftp://username::Fhjukp$24456@88.120.22.135:8022/ -privatekey="D:\Folder\privatekey.ppk" -hostkey="ssh-rsa 1024 MKA9n3CYF8dY+j9P713bUoWelyJtFdv8gNyuyiuyiuyiu" -passphrase="P@,q9KWI"

I wouldn't be suggesting that, if it were not possible. What posts are you referring to?

The password needs encoding, as it is a part of a session URL. The passphrase is not.
Though it's quite unlikely that you need both password and passphrase.

I will use the below command?

open sftp://username::Fhjukp$24456@88.120.22.135:8022/ -privatekey="D:\Folder\privatekey.ppk" -hostkey="ssh-rsa 1024 MKA9n3CYF8dY+j9P713bUoWelyJtFdv8gNyuyiuyiuyiu" -passphrase="P@,q9KWI"
.
Why don't you just try?
Though, yes, if you really need both passphrase and password.
