Getting "referenceerror cryptojs is not defined" in firefox when using hash256 in announcement banner.

Kamal Saini Oct 06, 2014


I am using below code in announcement banner of JIRA

<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

// Fetch JIRA userid from metadta tags
   var customUserId = '';
   metaTagCollection = document.getElementsByTagName('meta');
   for (i=0;i<metaTagCollection.length;i++) 
     if(metaTagCollection[i].getAttribute("name") == "ajs-remote-user")
       customUserId = metaTagCollection[i].content;
       alert(customUserId); // it gets printed on alert message
       var hashedId = CryptoJS.SHA256(customUserId);//getting error here in FF debug
       alert(hashedId); // this is not getting printed in firefox but in IE

When I hit JIRA and login then above code successfully run in IE and I am able to get the hashed value of userId but when I do same in firefox it throws error in debugger and only first alert print not the second one.

JIRA version: 6.2.7

Firefox version: 32.0.3

IE version: 8

The test code below when saved as "test.html" (not using in JIRA announcement banner) runs fine on same firefox version.

<script src=""></script>
    var hash = CryptoJS.SHA256("Message");
    alert(hash); // gets printed on firefox as well. No error.


Please help me here about what I am doing wrong or need to do extra?
