Some user dashboards not shown

Jump to solution

Hi All,

We have the issue that when some users login to alfresco their dashboard is missing (It worked previously and stopped one day only for some). Showing the following error:

I see the dashboard.xml files are here /app:company_home/st:sites/cm:surf-config/cmSmiley Tongueages/cm:user/cm:username/cm:dashboard.xml but because cm:surf-config has aspect sys:hidden I cannot view the contents of this file. 

Share.log error:

Hi David,

That's great! 

We worked out our issue too. Alfresco ran out of disk space and some users cmSmiley TonguereferenceValues binary files were missing.

So we did this to fix it.

I feel your pain

I have the same problem trying to migrate Alfresco COmmunity 5.1 from one machine to a new one. Doesn' happen to all users, but to some. I can't work out why or how to fix.

Hi David,

What we have realized thus far is that even if we generate a new alf_ticket with:

http://<host>:<port>/alfresco/service/api/login?u=<username>&pw=<password>

and use this ticket number to get dashboard.xml of user with:

http://<host>:<port>/alfresco/s/remoteadm/has/alfresco/site-data/pages/user/<username>/dashboard.xml?s=sitestore&alf_ticket=<ticketNumber>%20HTTP/1.1

It returns false for broken users and true for non-broken users. So the ticket is not recognised.

We are still investigating.

For us we've also noticed that /share/page/console - the Surf Console

isn't showing

Hi

We worked out our problem. A bit bizzare - we are using postgresql and

had the database tables in the public schema and the alfresco schema - a

database restore accident. This meant that probably the wrong tables

were getting read.

Hi @jepsontech,

The link = 403 because it routes to our customer support portal.
