E1: AIS: REST API Updatetext "/jderest/v2/file/updatetext" Adds BR Tag in Text Attachments Which Is Visible in Internet Explorer (Doc ID 2814363.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 20, 2021

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When the JDE REST API(RESTful Application Programming Interface) for updating media object text i.e /jderest/v2/file/updatetext is called via orchestrator or any other method and if the media object text that is passed to this API has line breaks , then the line breaks do not appear correctly when viewing the media object text attachments using Internet Explorer but shows <BR> tag instead. This happens when append mode parameter of the API is passed as True. The <BR> tag is not visible when using Chrome or Firefox browser.

For example : 

Steps to replicate:

  1. Create an orchestrator that calls the AIS REST API /jderest/v2/file/updatetext  
  2. Run the Orchestrator with following input parameters:   
  3. Verify that text is added as media object attechment for AB number 1001
  4. Repeat step 2 multiple times
  5. View the text attachment in Internet Explorer and then view the same text using Google Chrome 
  6. Notice the difference as illustrated in example above.
