Issue/Introduction



API Portal v3.1 / v3.5 CR9 (On-Premise)

Customer observed CMS pages got garbled (possibly in v3.5). As per customer clarification, HTML META elements had difference between those two versions as following.
(A) v3.1 :
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
(B) v3.5 CR9 :
<meta name="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

Here is a couple of questions.
(1) what caused this difference ? Is this a bug or spec?
(2) Is it possible and allowed to modify Apache httpd.conf on the META element to resolve the problem ?
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

Environment

Release:
Component: APIPRD

Resolution

1) CR9 has a defect where the X-UA-Compatible was not properly set. It is resolved in CR10.

2) Yes. You can add the header in the httpd.conf.

Header set X-UA-Compatible "IE=edge"
