Express admins cannot pass javascript:RP.getParameter(parameterName) as the default value to a survey question.

Steps to Reproduce


  1. Open a survey question of type Multi Line Text.

    For more information, see the Survey questions documentation topic.

  2. Attempt to enter "javascript:" as the starting text and save.

    The error "Using script is only allowed by admin" is displayed due to a redundant business rule that checks whether the user has access to a script field.
