I have 1 user who cannot get beyond the Viya 3.5 logon screen after entering her credentials. She gets "Processing request....." in the lower left hand corner of the screen (Chrome browser screenshot attached). When she clicks on + for new tab and clicks on her SAS Drive bookmark, she gets right in with no logon prompt. This issue started recently after logging in with no issues for several months. She is the only user having this issue.
Clearing all time cache in Chrome browser settings did not resolve this issue.
Hello @Tobey ,
indeed, as @SASKiwi indicates, it might be time to get support from SAS Tech Support teams.
Perhaps, before contacting them, you could:
- check the saslogon and identity logs, and perhaps try to restart them.
- check your identity provider (AD or LDAP) and see if this particular user had a recent modification in its objects/attributes. If there was any, maybe it would be worth to analyse what changed, the nature of what changed, and potentially also the way to resolve/adapt what changed.
- what is the authentication method in your Viya installation? Just OAuth, or some additional layer is involved, such as Kerberos or SAML for Single Sign On authentication? If it is the second case, then you might need to look at the SSO components, such as the cached Kerberos TGT, probably at the client computer.
- can this user log in from another computer?
In any case, the questions above might be some that SAS TS could rise anyways, and perhaps with this actions you can get your own answers too. I think they are worth the shot.
Please let us know.
Many thanks for your reply! The user can log in to Viya from another computer. So issue must be in Chrome browser on her computer. We tried clearing all cache, cookies, logins and passwords. She still gets "Processing request..." message and stays on logon screen. We will try reinstalling Chrome.
I am glad to know that works! Would it work from IE, or another web browser on her computer?
I am not fully sure that the issue is in Chrome, but it could be, worth a shot.
I can imagine as well it might be related to windows profile (I would live this as last option), or, if you have SSO enabled for Viya, then perhaps it is the Kerberos cache what needs to be flushed in her computer.
Good luck, please let us know how it goes with the reinstall.
