I am opening a dialog in Touch UI and able to enter a link to another site. See.


The page responds correctly too.


How are you adding the link in your instance?

Hi Scott , Thanks for replying  I am adding the links in the same way you did. I have tried on the Geometrixx pages as well and still I was able to see the issue . As you said you were checking with internal people ,any luck there ?

Hi Vijay

      I have my server with same configuration . But I don't see this issue


  So the issue you are having is with a custom component ? Can you test the same scenario with any OOTB component and in Geometrixx too ?

Can you try on a fresh instance and see if you get this in a new DEV fresh AEM instance.

@smacdonald2008  We have created custom link and it execute innerhtml properly with href tag.

But while we check in source edit href tag along disappeared if we changed href to href1 then it is persist and save also . Do we want to update any thing in XSS or any configuration .
