Can we have the Text Gadget enabled

Hi We'd like to use the Text gadget on a number of our projects but I'm struggling to enable it, is this something you have to do for us?

Hi Desmond,

This gadget is currently disabled in OnDemand instances due to the potential security risk. Sometimes it can contain arbitrary HTML which can make your system susceptible to XSS attacks.

There is currently a request to allow this gadget again, which you can see here. I encourage you to vote and comment on this to improve it's visibility and to also watch it so that you will get updates if the developers decide to implement this gadget once again.

Cheers,

Miranda

Hi Miranda,

Thanks for the prompt response, though I'm not able to find JRA-29848 when I search for it.

Can you have a look for me?

Hi Desmond,

The link I supplied should bring you right to it. You will need to sign up for jira.atlassian.com if you haven't already.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Cheers,

Hi Miranda, I get a Permission Violation message when I click on the link. If I log into jira.atlassian.com and try and search for JRA-29848, it doesn't appear.

Hi Des,

Ah, sorry but there is a restriction on this ticket that I should have seen to begin with. What I can do is add the support ticket you originally escalated internally to the issue to raise awareness.

Thanks for your understanding.

Cheers,

Miranda
