iStore Errors Out with "Input Contained Illegal Parameters"
Last updated on AUGUST 25, 2017
Applies to:Oracle iStore - Version 188.8.131.52 to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5.10 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The error message "Input contained illegal parameters" can be seen when attempting to provide an input which contains html tags and which can cause a cross site scripting attack to the site. For example, if a user types "<img" as a username and submits, this will error out.
Also if a URL parameter like "ref" has a server name different to your instance, the same message will also be displayed.
If the issue is specific to the configurator then this note's solution will also resolve the issue.
1. Go to iStore Customer UI
2. Type some characters which includes html tags
2. provide a parameter which contains a url different to the one of your server
