Cloud Applications Studio

Reproducing the Issue

The metadata of the Cloud Applications Studio is corrupted and needs to be refreshed by clearing the cache.

NOTE: When you download the Cloud Applications Studio installer you are subsequently installing CopernicusIsolatedShell folder on your local machine. One of the sub-folders is called "Projects" and this will contain all the Solutions that you have accessed via the Cloud Applications Studio regardless whether they are on the same system or not. Each project has a session(.session) file which is assigned to a user and also a lock(.lock) file right next to it if the user is currently logged into a system.


Note: This resolution does not apply to the mentioned symptom but can be used in various scenarios where the local machine contents of the solution are corrupted.

In order to clean the cache within Cloud Applications Studio please follow the below steps:

  1. Expand the "Administration" tab and click on "Options and Settings...".
  2. Switch to tab "Runtime Metadata" and click on "Clear Cache".


Alternatively you can manually delete the Project folder of the tenant you are unable to log in to, in order to do that please follow the below steps:

  1. Open the "CopernicusIsolatedShell\Projects" folder on your local machine.
  2. Locate the relevant system folder which is causing an issue and delete it.
