Error description

  • In security.properties we include an example:
    
    -----------------
    # A flag for modifying default Blind SQL Pattern check for
    resources named in a way that can be suspected as Blind SQL
    Injection attack.
    # Below is the value of flag with the default value specified.
    In case users face problem where they are not able to delete a
    resource
    # they can modify the below regular expression to include the
    special character or pattern which is preventing the resource
    deletion
    # blindSQLPattern=?[a-zA-Z0-9\\s\\.\\:\\-_]{1,100}$
    # For Example if customer wants to delete a resource which has
    character & in their name they can use the below value
    # blindSQLPattern=?[a-zA-Z0-9\\s\\.\\:\\-_&]{1,100}$
    -----------------
    
    The first character after the = should be a carrot (Hex 5E)  In
    the properties file it is a Hex 88.  In many
    character sets a hex 88 looks like a hex 5E.
    
    The properties should look like:
    
    ------------------
    # A flag for modifying default Blind SQL Pattern check for
    resources named in a way that can be suspected as Blind SQL
    Injection attack.
    # Below is the value of flag with the default value specified.
    In case users face problem where they are not able to delete a
    resource
    # they can modify the below regular expression to include the
    special character or pattern which is preventing the resource
    deletion
    # blindSQLPattern=^[a-zA-Z0-9\\s\\.\\:\\-_]{1,100}$
    # For Example if customer wants to delete a resource which has
    character & in their name they can use the below value
    # blindSQLPattern=^[a-zA-Z0-9\\s\\.\\:\\-_&]{1,100}$
