2511842 - Competency Behavior Description does not support formatting

Symptom

Competency behavior description does not support  formatting (eg. new line, bold, list order, etc via tokens or HTML tags) as competency description does

Environment

  • Performance Management
  • Competency and Behaviors

Cause

  • This is expected system behavior.
  •  The behavior description is still a text area input. PM page should display exactly what user inputs. If user types 11 chars “<b>test</b>” then page should display that 11 chars instead of a bold “test” string. This is for security purpose to avoid some javascript hack attack (user may type javascript in that text area input)
  • Only when EZ rater is used in the section will the formatting be done otherwise not.
