Access Manager 4.4


NAM Admin Console is upgraded from 4.4.

Create a FormFill/Rewriter/AG Advance Option with content document.* or windows.* ( eg document.write, windows.open).

Open the policy again and all the content will be changed to hex characters.

For example: A java script containing line windows.defaultStatus = “xyz” will change to 20 = “xyz”
