Symptoms

There are many different types of esapi filters put in place to prevent cross site scripting and user security intrusions to your documents and infocenter system.  These are completely described in the web security guide manual in the product documentation.  Most of the time there is not an error screen for the esapi error.

TIP: The logs show what security filter is being violated or used.  Make sure that changes to the properties files are being picked up in the application through log examination.
