Scomis Hosted Application Connector – Not Responding

Our connector will hang and appear “not responding” if certain characters make part of your Hosted Application Service Password.

Problem

Our connector will hang

if a double quote character forms part of your password

Cause

The way the connection stores your password uses a double quote, introducing another one through the password causes an error in this process.

 

Solution

We are updating our Password change tool to prevent use of a double quote in user passwords, unfortunately we can’t prevent users putting a double quote into their password through the standard change password screen.

Workaround

If you are currently effected enter an incorrect password in our connector that does not contain a double quote, you will then be presented with a second login where you can enter the problem password.

Once logged in press Ctrl+Alt+End to bring up the menu screen

Choose a new password, make sure it meets the complexity requirements but does not contain a double quote character.
