1758215 - The User Is Prompted For Credentials From Information Design Tool Even Though They Already Have A Valid / Active Session With The CMS


  • In the Information Design Tool, when examining the Data Foundation Layer (dfx) of a multi-source universe by opening the Connection (press the +) or publishing the retrieved universe to CMS, the user is prompted for credentials, even though they already have a valid / active session with the CMS
  • In the logon dialog that is presented (Open Session), the System name is already filled in, but it's missing the @ to indicate it's a cluster name. The field is disabled, so you can't add the @ back. Since the cluster name doesn't match the system name, the logon cannot succeed (unknown system)
