Embedded Browser Error: An error has occurred in the script on this page

SecureAuth IdP Version Affected: All

Description: 

When users enter their credentials in an embedded browser for authentication, the following script error message appears: An error has occurred in the script on this page: "WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions' is undefined"

Cause: 

ASP.NET does not know that the embedded browser supports EcmaScript v3. Some of the embedded browsers are not identifiable by .NET Framework, so by default the functional level of contents rendered for them by IIS are down-leveled.  Doing so causes advanced features like javascript to be disabled.

Resolution:

  1. Create a new folder within your application realm, and name it "App_Browsers" - D:\SecureAuth\SecureAuth#\App_Browsers
  2. Within that folder, create a .browser file.
  3. In this example, we will use "BoxSync.browser", that includes the following:

    <browsers>

        <browser id="BoxSync" parentID="Default">

            <identification>

                <userAgent match="Box Sync" />

            </identification>

            <capabilities>

                <capability name="ecmascriptversion" value="3.0" />

            </capabilities>

        </browser>

    </browsers>

  4. Another example for Palo Alto GlobalProtect:

    <browsers>

        <browser id="GlobalProtect" parentID="Default">

            <identification>

                <userAgent match="GlobalProtect" />

            </identification>

            <capabilities>

                <capability name="ecmascriptversion" value="3.0" />

            </capabilities>

        </browser>

    </browsers>

  5. The syntax can be used for any 'WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions' is undefined error within an embedded browser that supports EcmaScript v3:

    <browsers>

        <browser id="Application Name" parentID="Default">

            <identification>

                <userAgent match="Application Name" />

            </identification>

            <capabilities>

                <capability name="ecmascriptversion" value="3.0" />

            </capabilities>

        </browser>

    </browsers>

  6. This tells ASP.net that the Global Protect embedded browser supports EcmaScript v.3. There may be other <capabilities> that are needed/desired, so additional testing may be required.
