After changing the EiamAdmin password in EEM, users are no longer able to access any of the event actions such as Force Start or Send Event in QuickView. The following error is observed in <WCC_HOME>/log/CA-wcc.log when a user selects a job in QuickView...

2020-03-05 13:01:43,433 @resources < USER1 ~B44> [] ERROR #AccessFacade                       # Cannot check permission for SARResourceClass=as-sendevent, ResourceName=ACE, Action=set_global

java.lang.RuntimeException: can not establish context


When the EiamAdmin password is changed in EEM, you must update the EEM server definition in WCC with the new password. Otherwise, WCC will no longer be able to access the WorkloadAutomationAE application in EEM to check as-sendevent access for a user, which is required to get access to event actions in QuickView.
