Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 What does the field #BadCssChars do and why is the recommendation to have it blank?


As per banking industry standard, we put these values in the #BadCssChars variable during configuration to avoid Cross Site Scripting (CSS) attacks:

  <,>,',%22 (4 characters)

and not the one suggested in the note, which is to keep this value blank.
