Broken Links in OIM Compliance Agreement Emails

Posted: 05:28:04, Thursday, Jun 23, 2011   Expiration: 05:28:04, Thursday, Jun 30, 2011  

Some of the OIM Compliance Agreement emails sent out recently contained a broken link.

The broken links have "amp;" in the URL as in the example below.
https://oim.iam.wisconsin.edu/xlWebApp/complianceAgreement.do?method=view&requestKey=8cb7c4185e6b5250:2b7db28f2a473d51

There are two ways to work around this:

  1. Copy/paste the URL into your browser's address bar and remove the "amp;" so that it looks like this
    https://oim.iam.wisconsin.edu/xlWebApp/complianceAgreement.do?method=view&requestKey=8cb7c4185e6b5250:2b7db28f2a473d51

  2. Open the email in the WiscMail web client and click the link. The link works correctly through the web client but not desktop clients.
