PT 8.56


Referrer URL is causing Auth Error and Error Creating Label (for page title)  

 

ERROR:

You are not authorized (40,20)

Unencode referrer URL was causing Auth Error and Error Creating Label (for page title) because it was creating a src URL in the (hidden) iFrame with id="ptremotedatagetter" that was escaped, and looked like this:
   https://iepsp1.dev.cu.edu/psc/iepsp1/EMPLOYEE/ENTP/ptgetremotedata?d=dev.cu.edu&postFunction=postBackHistoryMessage

When the browser tried to load it, it didn't recognize it as a valid URL, so it appended it to the the current portal URL, and ended up trying to load this:
 https://hcmsp1.dev.cu.edu/psc/hcmsp1/EMPLOYEE/HCM/c/https://iepsp1.dev.cu.edu/psc/iepsp1/EMPLOYEE/ENTP/ptgetremotedata?d=dev.cu.edu&postFunction=postBackHistoryMessage
