Error description

  • Once upgradeded to 7.6.0.4 the copy and paste of an image into
    a long description field works, however upon saving, it
    disappears.
    Querying the DB shows it is there.
    This works fine in their 7.6.0.0 environments. But in all their
    7.6.0.4 environments this is failing.
    
    No matter if the images are entered by the Insert Image, CTRL+V
    or Paste from Word action, what happens is that the image
    simply disappears from the Long Description editor after she
    clicks OK button, and saves record. (happening to any
    application)
    
    Rich Text Format is enabled for the 7.6.0.4 environments and
    this is happening even using multiple browsers, such as
    FireFox, IE or Chrome. (not browser specific)
    
    Steps to replicate on 7.6.0.4
    
    1- Log into maximo as maxadmin
    2- Go to Assets app
    3- Open any asset record
    4- Edit the long description of the asset and paste a picture
    5- Tab out or click OK to save record
    6- As a result, the picture disappeared from the Long
    Description

Problem conclusion

  • Added the AntiSamy filter that allows the rich text sanitizer to
    create a security policy based on the sanitizePolicy.xml file
    (in the properties folder).
