Network tab - Content under user -> network tab shows the html tags

After confluence upgrade 4.3.2 Network tab under user displays improperly formatted links i.e. html text is shown.

It looks good If I disable security configuration -> XSS Protection for Plugins -> anti xss mode for plugins.

Looks like it is a bug in confluence 4.3.2

Can someone look into this issue.

Hi Anitha,

This behavior is by design for some HTML. If it is inserted as content in Confluence pages, HTML will appropriately, but any properties or formatting outside of page content will not render the HTML because of potential XSS vulnerabilities (which is why this will work when you turn off the security feature).



Hi Dave,

Can you suggest how I can fix this. Please find the screenshot.

It looks like you've made customizations to the HTML or added a plugin that is no longer supported - is this an ondemand instance?

This is not on demand instance. As far as I know we didn't made any customizations to the HTML and it uses Profile Macros Plugin 1.0 which has 5 modules including network module which displays summary of user's profile in confluence page
