Fixed In:

Opened: Apr 27, 2018
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Portal Access cannot correctly handle JavaScript with shorthand properties in object literals on the server-side. Modern JavaScript supports shorthand for 'a:a' assignments in object literals, for example: var A = { a }; This is a short variant of equivalent full definition: var A = { a : a }; Portal Access reports a syntax error at shorthand object literal definitions.

Impact

Web application may not work correctly.

Conditions

JavaScript with shorthand definitions in object literals, for example: var A = { a };

Workaround

Use iRule to replace shorthand definitions by full ones.

Fix Information

Now Portal Access can handle JavaScript with shorthand properties in object literals correctly at server-side.
