Novell Access Management 3 Access Administration


Back end application included a HTML login form with javascript functions to execute on form submission and on form load

< body onload="body_onload()" bgcolor="#ffffff" link="#0000ff" vlink="#800080" alink="#ff0000">

When reverse proxy'ing this page with the Linux Access Gateway, a formfill policy was added to single sign on to the page. The policy was configured to fill the required fields, and to submit the data. The submit options were set to autopost with debug mode, and to Enable JavaScript Handling. The Javascript handling ->'Functions to keep' included some of the javascript functions from the login page e.g. function isValid(). There were no 'Statements to Execute on Submit'.

After authenticating to the Access Gateway and accessing the page, a view source allowed via the debug mode enabling would show that all relevant fields to be posted were correctly filled. Clicking to submit the form would return a javascript error on IE and the form is never submitted.


Remove the javascript function names from the Javascript handling ->'Functions to keep' field of the formfill policy. The Linux Access gateway still executes the javascript commands required.
