How to disable JMP security warning

Hi,

When I open files with scripts, I got "JMP security warning" with three options: Examine, Open and cancel (see attached).

The option for "always ask before opening this file" is disable.

How can I disable it and make the JMP to always open it w/o this popup?

Thanks in advance!

Re: How to disable JMP security warning

The file server share needs to be added to your trusted zone.

Capture0.PNGServer is not in the trusted zone, yet

to implicitly trust content from this share, use the control panel Internet Options applet. (Note that anyone that has access to the server can change the file. That's why it isn't implicitly trusted by default.)

Capture1.PNGControl Panel internet options go to the security tab.

Capture2.PNGChoose the security tab

open the local intranet sites.

Capture3.PNGPick local intranet

go to the advanced settings.

Capture4.PNGAdvanced settings

I needed two different names for the same place. VBoxSvr is the name of the server, and H:\ is a drive letter mapping.

Capture5.PNGLook at the server shares in the explorer

Capture6.PNGAdd a drive letter

add them both, then close/OK all the way back.

Capture7.PNGAdd the server

No more security prompt!

The three check boxes on the sites dialog also make it work, but I think it is better to be a little more specific with the advanced dialog about which servers are OK.

Re: How to disable JMP security warning

Hi.

 

Do you know if it is possible to disable the security warning from the JMP-end, perhaps from the preferences?

 

The reason being that the Internet Options settings in many organisations are configured by the administrator. Thereby making the solution slightly more complicated.

 

From the same computer with both JMP 13 and JMP 14 installed, it is only an issue with the security warning in JMP 14. I would therefore think that the issue should be configurable in JMP. This is supported by the "Always ask before opening this file" check-box, which unfortunately is greyed out.

 

I look forward to hear from you.

 

Br, Christian

Re: How to disable JMP security warning

There is no JMP preference to ignore the Windows internet zone security settings. You can control the prompting behavior from JSL scripts. See https://www.jmp.com/support/help/14/table-scripts.shtml#1448859 which describes the Quarantine Action parameter in the Open function. 

You can also move the file to a trusted zone that is shared between users, or local to your machine.

Re: How to disable JMP security warning

Thanks for your suggestion. And the Quarantine Action function works for me.

It would however be great if this could be configured in JMP because that would avoid the issues of:

  • It is not always poosible to move files, nor configure a shared drive as trusted
  • Scripts that have previously worked in JMP 13 will need to be revised if the Quarantine Action function has to be implemented throughout the code.

It seems to me like it is an issue with JMP, as version 13 did not have this "feature" :)

Re: How to disable JMP security warning

Security features are often an inconvience but are added on purpose as a feature.  I personally see this as an improvement.  There's also no reason for JMP 14 to be backwards compatible for every feature.  Yes, everytime you update you need to revise your scripts, but this is true in every language.

Hi Craige,

Thanks for the explanation. However, what if you're in a IT restricted situation? Where you have no control or access to the Internet Options?

Re: How to disable JMP security warning

Craige, thank you for this solution. I am having trouble applying it to Google Drive File Stream. It's not a shared or mounted drive, but rather shows up as a drive letter. I've tried several combinations but JMP persists on the warning. Any advice?
