Information Centric Analytics


When a user logs in to the Information Centric Analytics (ICA) console using credentials that differ from those used to login to Windows, a generic error message is displayed on some or all pages. The page content still loads, and refreshing the page may clear the error message. These errors may be intermittently or regularly displayed, and may occur differently for different users. The ActivityLog table in the RiskFabric database will contain entries similar to the following:

<domain>\<account-a> Windows successfully logged in
5/3/23 16:10
<domain>\<account-b> Windows unauthorized
5/3/23 16:10

Corresponding errors can be found in the application log (w3wp_RiskFabric.<yyyyMMdd>.log):

2023-05-03 16:10:43,906 [13:ERROR] LoggingExceptionFilterAttribute.OnException() https://<hostname>/api/WidgetAgingView/GetSectionData
RiskFabric.Web.Library.Users.PortalUserUnauthorizedException: INVALID USER


Release : 6.x

Component : Microsoft Internet Information Services


The reported behavior is caused by an issue in Chromium-based browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge).
