  • Role/domain-based access via a secure proxy data

4. Resolved Issues

This section describes the resolved issues that are included in enPortal version 5.3.20.

  • Fixed an issue where having nested content, under a top-level folder containing both channels and sub-folders, can result in certain menu labels being shown as bold when they are not the currently selected item. (EN-14)
  • Fixed an issue when using Oracle as the enPortal database, by changing BOOLEAN to BIT. (EN-23)
  • Fixed an issue in the provisioning code where content provisioned at the item level (not clicking on the folder when provisioning the role) was not preserved after implementing a system backup and restore. (EN-29)
  • Corrected an issue in the PIMExport utility that caused PIMs in some cases to have issues loading in Unix due to a backwards slash. (EN-33)
  • Added non-caching headers to CRS error page to fix an issue where error messages could continue to be displayed even after the system is re-started and a problem is resolved. (EN-35)
  • Fixed a potential cross-site scripting vulnerability where an error URL was being written out in a CRS error message dialog. (EN-38)
  • Upgraded the fields that store a channel's meta information to support entries larger than 1024 characters, enabling legacy channels to be copied and pasted in enPortal 5.x. (EN-28)
