the javascript injection in edit configuration of Custom Fields throws a XSS - Cross Site scripting error.

How to deal with it? is there a safe way? I am using JIRA version 5.2. Is there a newer version that has the auto render ability for multi select custom fields?

Just make sure that javascript is accessing urls that match all these things, just like the originating page, in which that script was loaded:

  • protocol specification (http / https)
  • host name (www.atlassian.com)
  • port number (if present after the host name)

Javascript ajax calls will be restricted to these 3 or the XSS error will appear. So, without any code samples I can't provide any more help than this :(
