Known issue.


ITMS 8.5 RU3, RU4


This issue has been reported to Symantec Development team. A fix for this has been targeted for a later release (Post ITMS 8.5 RU4 release).

Current workaround:

  1. Download the attached "MultiRowDataClassControl.js" file.
  2. Replace "MultiRowDataClassControl.js" in "%NS INSTALL DIR%\CMDB\Web\AssetContractCommon\Include\"

    Note: After applying "MultiRowDataClassControl.js", you need to clear browsing data and restart Chrome browser to make new .js working.

  3. Test if "Browse URL" button works fine.  URL should open in a separate browser dialog.
