Issue/Introduction

We've been receiving the following error:   "There was an error loading this page.  Please try again" when using the User Admin page.  When attempting to load the same in Incognito mode, we were able to render the page, but after a few minutes of navigating, received the same error.

Cause

This is usually due to a corrupt filter setting that prevents the page from loading.  Filters are saved as a Preference on a per-user basis.  To clear the potentially corrupt filter setting, you can delete the filter preference.  Each user experiencing this issue will need to walk through the process to clear their own preference. 

Resolution

The preference deleter is available as a community app from GitHub.  In order to install it, perform the following steps:

  1. On your dashboard or a custom page, add the "Custom HTML" app from the App Catalog.
  2. Paste the Preference Deleter code from This URL into the HTML section of the custom HTML application and <Save>.
  3. You will be prompted to enter the Preference Name: users-grid
  4. Make sure there are no beginning or ending spaces in the entry and click Find Preference.
  5. Then click the Delete button and confirm.
  6. Delete Preference Permanently.
  7. Once you have deleted all preferences, click the Find Preference button again and ensure that you see a popup box titled Preference Not Found.
  8. Logout immediately (don't navigate to any other page, so as not to save any additional preferences).
  9. Log back in and check the page that had the issue.
