  • In Employee Central-enabled instances, you can now prevent the import of unsecured content.
  • This applies to basic and extended user import.
  • When the "Security Scan of User Inputs" option is enabled, and fields containing unsecured scripts, such as cross-site scripting, are detected, the import ignores the fields.
  • The fields skipped are reported in the import status e-mail.

To Enable:

  1. Admin Centre
  2. Platform Feature Settings
  3. Select checkbox for Security Scan of User Inputs
  4. Save
