Escaping quotes in server start arguments

I use Weblogic 12c on AIX and I want to add a server start argument for an IBM JVM that looks like this:

     -Xdump:tool:events=systhrow,filter=java/lang/OutOfMemoryError,exec="kill -9 %pid"

Since it contains double quotes and spaces I cannot enter it as is with the Administration Console in the "Arguments" field on the "Configuration/Server Start" panel.

The console responds with:

     Arguments may not contain '"'.


How can I escape the double quotes?
