  2. Select Families and Roles
  3. Edit the Job Profile
  4. Click Next button
  5. Update the Job Profile content by copy pasting
  6. Click Save and get the error.


As part of the b2011 release, Java script tags that create an event are not supported anymore. Therefore, these tags would need to be removed. 


The error message will tell you the section where the invalid javascript is. You need to sanitize the text in this section. You can use notepad to clear the hidden formatting or javascript.
