E1: MOBJ: Non-ActiveX Controls (HTML) for EnterpriseOne Grid Import / Export and Media Object Attachments for all browsers Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer (IE), Safari
(Doc ID 780761.1)
Last updated on MARCH 13, 2019
Applies to:JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version SP24 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Media object attachments have made use of a Microsoft technology which requires the installation of an activeX control within the Internet Explorer browser. This technology does not function with a non-Microsoft browser. Therefore, changes have been made to enhance the E1 software and allow all browsers to work with import/export and media object (MOBJ) attachments. This document provides details on what is supported with Firefox when using the grid import / export functionality and text media object attachments.
For limits on the import and export functionality see <Document:1487909.1> JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.1.X Web Client Support Statement under the headings "Web Client Firefox Information" and "Web Client Google Chrome Information".
The following topics will cover the enhanced functionality. For more information on activeX controls see <Document 1056203.1> E1: MOBJ: GRID: Working with E1 Web Client ActiveX Controls for Media Object and Grid Export / Import with Internet Explorer.
Also review the "What is the impact or implications to the grid and media objects when turning off ActiveX controls for media objects and grid import / export?" blog post for details on the implications / impact of making the change to stop using ActiveX controls.
With 8.98.3, there are two options False and True for activeX controls. Disabling the activeX control will enable the HTML text attachments for all browsers but will also remove OLE and have an impact on grid functionality. With the 9.1 tools release the jas.ini setting SupportActiveXIE has three options instead of two. This will allow for the user to continue using OLE (Object Linking and Embedding which is also a Microsoft technology) which requires activeX control but will allow for the user of text attachments as well.
Clarification - Setting the control to False or OLEONLY does not mean only Chrome and Firefox can be used for text attachments. It simply changes the method to access the attachments from activeX controls to HTML. It does not matter which browser you use, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.
Make certain all ini changes are made through Server Manager and not directly through the ini.
This document will cover supported features for the Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari browsers with activeX turned off. Before continuing, be sure you meet the minimum technical requirements (MTR).
