Problem Description: We recently upgraded from CF 11 to CF 2016. Occasionally we are getting this error access denied (""... when trying to parse an in memory xml string. We have our application sandboxed, so we don't get this error when sandboxing is turned off but we do get when sandboxing is turned on.

Steps to Reproduce: Sandbox a CF application so it is not allowed to write to applications directory. Call an REST/SOAP service that returns a XML string. Call xmlParse on the response.

Actual Result: See Post

Expected Result: Converts XML text into an XML document object

Any Workarounds: We are using FW1 so the model is getting cached. If I restart ColdFusion that seems to fix the problem, however the other day it did not fix the problem in production and I have since had to turn off Sandboxing altogether since it's an all or nothing swithc.



Hi,   Can you share the exception logs when you see this error?   Thanks, Kailash
