JR50405: DOUBLE ENCODED USER INPUT IN HERITAGE COACH

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Some heritage coaches that contain drop-down menus that have
    special characters, such as ampersands (&), are not encoding
    properly. For example, ampersands are encoded as &&.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • There are two filters that encode user input when it is
    retrieved from heritage coaches and stored in human service
    variables. There is some overlap so that for some user interface
    elements, such as drop-down menus, values are encoded in both
    places, which results in double encoded values.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is/will be available for IBM BPM that ensures exactly once
    encoding of user input that is retrieved in heritage coaches.
