Following up on something that we noted in our documentation a while back, we are planning to deprecate the ability to disable the Filter Content-Type option in the Platform Subsystem.
Although enabling this setting is the default in ThingWorx, and doing so is strongly recommended to prevent cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks, it is still possible to disable it. We allowed for this option because of concerns about backwards compatibility, but now that several major versions have passed we are planning to make the default setting mandatory in a future release of ThingWorx (likely by the end of calendar year 2021). Removing the ability to disable Filter Content-Type will further enhance the security of the ThingWorx platform.
Please chime in on this post of you have any concerns.

From which version, it's going to be disabled?
We are using custom UI to interacting with Thingworx(backend) which will create issues in the application if content type filter is enabled. If so, will there be any work around to handle this? Thanks
Our plan is to make this change in (what will likely be) ThingWorx 9.3. We aren't planning a workaround, as disabling Filter Content-Type is not generally considered a security best practice.
