The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:

    e.g.:
     
    myFunction.js
     
     
     
     
  2. Upload the html file to WebCenter Portal.

    • Go to the Documents page of the portal where the Javascript file was uploaded.
       

    • Upload the TestAlert.html file.
       

    • Select the TestAlert.html file and click "Get Link" to get the document links.
       

    • Note down the file additional link.
      It should look like this:
       
      http://<HOST>:<PORT>/webcenter/content/conn/WebCenterSpaces-ucm/path/Enterprise Libraries/PortalTest/TestAlert.html

  3. Open a new browser window and enter the html document URL.  Notice the alert does not work.
