General security settings

Security settings provide several properties to control the level of security on your instance.

There are two ways to set or change general security settings properties.
  • Navigate to System Properties > Security.

    Options on the Security page are Yes or No.

  • Navigate to the sys_properties.list and search for the property you want to set or change.

    Options in the System Properties table [sys_properties.list] are true or false.

Warning: When implementing any of these security features, you must thoroughly test the features before deploying them in a production instance.
Table 1. General security settings
Property Description
Escaping and embedded script support Allow support for embedding HTML code by using the [code] tag.
  • Default value: Yes Allow embedded HTML (using [code] tags) to contain Javascript tags.
glide.ui.escape_all_script Forces all expressions within Jelly JavaScript <script type="text/javascript"> tags to be escaped by default. Enforces escaping only if the type attribute in the <script> tag is empty, or if the value is text/javascript, text/ecmascript, application/javascript, application/ecmascript, or application/x-javascript.
  • Default value:
    • New/zbooted instances: Yes

Attachment limits and behavior
com.glide.attachment.max_size Maximum file attachment size in megabytes.
glide.attachment.role List of roles (comma-separated) that can create attachments.
glide.attachment.extensions List of file extensions (comma-separated) that can be attached to documents via the attachment dialog. Extensions should not include the dot (.), for example, xls, xlsx, doc, docx. Leave blank to allow all extensions.
glide.ui.attachment.force_download_all_mime_types Forces download of all attachment files. This property must be set to activate MIME type checking for uploads (all versions). Enables (Yes) or disables (No) MIME type validation for file attachments. File extensions configured via glide.attachment.extensions are checked for MIME type during upload.
Customer uploads

These properties affect customer uploads only. They do not affect attachments.

glide.ui.strict_customer_uploaded_static_content When set to Yes, turns on the ability to restrict the types of files that can be downloaded, when they have been uploaded using the Upload File functionality of the Now Platform. Used with glide.ui.strict_customer_uploaded_content_types
glide.ui.strict_customer_uploaded_content_types When this parameter includes a list of comma-delimited file types, of the files that were uploaded using the Upload File functionality of the Now Platform, only these file types can be downloaded from the instance.
Security Manager and options Security Manager. Security manager default behavior in the absence of any ACLs on a table. Double-check security on inbound transactions during form submission (rights are always checked on form generation). Check conditions on UI actions before execution. Normally conditions are checked only during form rendering. Enforce create (as opposed to write) rules on new records. Display an explanation on locked form elements.
glide.ui.forgetme Remove Remember me check box from login page.
glide.ui.secure_cookies Enable secure session cookies: Enable additional cookie security. If Yes, strict session cookie validation is enforced. With version 3 cookies enabled, additional security requirements are also enforced.
glide.secure_cookie.debug Secure session cookie debugging: Check to enable extensive debug logging of secure session cookie operations.
Security restrictions for execution of scripts originating from the client
glide.script.use.sandbox Run client-generated scripts (AJAXEvaluate and query conditions) inside a reduced-rights sandbox. If Yes, only those business rules and script includes with the Client callable check box set to Yes are available, and certain back-end API calls are disallowed.
glide.script.allow.ajaxevaluate Enable the AJAXEvaluate processor. Apply standard security ACLs to AJAXGlideRecord calls.
  • Default value: Yes for new and upgraded instances. If Yes, cannot be changed to No.
com.glide.communications.trustmanager_trust_all By default, the instance trusts a certificate's Certificate Authority (CA) to ensure that the instance accepts self-issued certificates. If you want to validate a certificate's CA, set the system property to No.
glide.outbound.sslv3.disabled When active, outbound connections from an instance are forced to use TLS instead of SSL.

Additional properties are available for High Security Settings.
