Is the auto-generated "jquery.js" file necessary?

Postby Vernholio on Tue Jul 10, 2018 7:36 am

I had a company-internal issue raised recently against one of my Flare-generated help systems. It's stating that there's a potential vulnerability in the "jquery.js" file, and we'll lose our FedRAMP certification clearance if the file is not "dealt" with. This file is auto-generated and included in each help build (Flare 12 64-bit). Is this file necessary to the help system? I'm a tech writer and not a coder, so I have no idea what this file does, nor how to identify/fix a potential vulnerability. If the file is non-essential, I'll probably just manually remove it from my build.

Thanks in advance for any information.

Only if you want the help to work. :P Seriously though, yes it's makes everything work.

I seem to remember another post discussing that the version of jquery is old and MadCap are aware of it. So it might be that a newer version will be available soon. If I find the post, I'll come back and add it for you to look at.
