/clarity-*.js blocking VMware vCenter console

Post by meismyname » Wed Mar 15, 2017 6:14 pm

Hey, ran into an issue with the vCenter console not loading for me and traced it back to the EasyPrivacy list.

According to the logs, there's an entry for "/clarity-*.js". Unfortunately, this is blocking the link below, and the entire console won't load with this rule active.

https://(InternalServerName)/ui/resources/libs/clarity-angular1.min.js

VMware lists these libraries on their github page so you can see what I'm talking about.

Let me know if you have any questions!

EasyPrivacy is an optional subscription on most Ad Blockers.

Your options are:

A. Disable the filter list.

B. Add an exception rule:

Code: Select all

@@/clarity-*.js$domain=InternalServerName
C. Ask VMware to use a different file name.

Since the resources are all internal it would be near impossible to add an exception for something like this.

Agreed. Not much can be changed to fix this

I am affected by this as well. I think it's an unnecessarily broad pattern -- are you sure it's not possible to make the pattern more specific to the resource it intends to block? What does it block in the first place?

Clarity isn't just for vCenter, it's an open source UI framework. It's like blocking Bootstrap or UIKit (although far less popular, but only because it's so new).
