Custom HTML

Print this topicEmail this topic

The Custom HTML app allows you to create an app using your own custom HTML and Javascript code.


IMPORTANT: Enabling custom app pages allows users to create pages containing HTML, JavaScript, and other client-side scripting languages. Allowing this feature may expose your subscription to Cross Site Scripting (XSS) security vulnerabilities such as code injection and the manipulation of client-side applications by malicious users. Your subscription administrator must enable custom apps.

Custom code

You are responsible for developing and maintaining the custom code entered into the Custom HTML app. Code may be written in HTML or Javascript, and query data using Rally's Web Services API and App SDK.

If you do not have resources in your organization to create custom code, Rally offers a code-for-hire service. Contact our Platform Extension Services team for more information.
