This document (7023234) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Micro Focus Filr 3


The Java applets which facilitate the use of the ‘drag-and-drop file upload’ and ‘edit-in-place’ features in the Filr Web interface, expired on August 1st, 2018.

As a result, end users may experience one of the following issues:

a. Unable to add files via the drag-and-drop file upload (for browsers that do not support HTML5 file uploads or when using the CTRL + Add Files in a browser with java support)

b. Unable to edit files via the Edit This File option in the Web interface


These applets have been updated to renew the validity until July 27th, 2021 via the online update Filr 3 Security Update 4 available over the Filr 3.0 update channel.

Note: Clearing the Java cache may be needed, see here for how to clear the Java cache on a client machine.
