[CASE OPENED]IA object stylesheet has system ipaddress imbedded and fails when copied

We have an IA developed report that has an imbedded style sheet. Normal execution when run on the original system. (The system where the IA object report was created). BUT, when I use change management and copy the object along with its html to another system, we have issues. The original system is a HTTP system but the target system is HTTPS. Part of the research identified that the HTTP system IP address had somehow been hardcoded to the style sheet and when we run the object from the HTTPS system, we get security warnings(secure and non secure content). We have edited the report object using AppStudio and tried to remove/add the style sheet back to the report in the HTTPS system but nothing changes. We still get the security warnings. So, my idea is that IA created report objects are not meant to be moved "around systems". That they are intended to be created on one system and they will only be on that system. If moved from system to system, then the systems must be the "same" type, all HTTP or all HTTPS. Any thoughts, comments, confirmations or no you can do a move between http and https but you have to do these additional things. We are using 8105M dev and prod systems. Hope to move all systems to 823 in June. Thanks!

Do you have an example of what style gets transformed to what invalid one?

I'm a bit confused by there being host-information in the stylesheet at all...

I have ask the developer if she has an example of what you ask about. Agreed, we are confused as well. My speculation is that IA developed objects are not intended to be moved between systems. OR if they are able to be moved between systems, both systems must either be http or https(based on the fact that the system ip address was embedded in the style sheet referenced on the IA object). I am going to go ahead and open a case with support. If I get a resolution, I will update this post.
