Advising Notes Page Add Attachments Feature Accepts All File Types (Doc ID 2628457.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 26, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Academic Advisement - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Campus Solutions 9.2, it is possible to add .exe files as attachments on the Advising Notes page (Main Menu > Academic Advisement > Student Advisement > Advising Notes). While this causes no errors, it is usually not considered best practice to allow executable file types as attachments.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Academic Advisement > Student Advisement > Advising Notes
  2. Click Add Attachment
  3. In the file browser, locate any file with a .exe extension
  4. Click upload
