Unable to sign in to the CONNECTION Client.
1. Enter Email and Password then click Sign In in the CONNECTION Client
2. You are presented with either of the following errors:"The webpage cannot be displayed..."
Or "Connection Issues. Could not connect..."
There are several reasons that your CONNECTION Client fails to sign in. Here are a couple of known reasons.
As a first step, try right clicking in the middle of the CONNECTION Client window and choose "Back". Or, press F5 to refresh.
Error : Unable to sign in. Your system clock is out of sync with the server.
When you sign in to the CONNECTION Client you receive a security token that is time stamped. If your clock is incorrect you have to fix it before you can sign in. In the error above it references that your system clock is not in sync with the server. The server mentioned in your network server. In that case you'll need to contact your IT department to request that the time on the server is fixed.
The error may not present, but you'll see the following in the logs:
DEBUG - LoginControlViewModel - Failed to deserialize token: System.IdentityModel.Tokens.SecurityTokenNotYetValidException: ID4222: The SamlSecurityToken is rejected because the SamlAssertion.NotBefore condition is not satisfied. NotBefore: '4/27/2021 1:46:19 PM' Current time: '4/27/2021 12:51:19 PM'
To resolve the issue, synchronize the clock on your local Windows machine with the time server at https://www.time.gov , alternatively, manually set the time with the time displayed on https://time.is. Then, restart CONNECTION Client, and attempt to sign in again.
Once the clock is corrected you should be able to sign in successfully.
Another reason is that you have a proxy server that has not been configured or a firewall that is blocking access.
Check the Bentley.Connect.Client.exe.log. There you should see an error similar to this one if you're proxy is blocking you:
02-07-17 07:17:17.931  ERROR - SingleSignOnControl - An error occured during federated login process - The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required.
02-07-17 18:10:20.302  ERROR - BUDDIClient - GetUrl() encountered an error: System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: There was no endpoint listening at https://buddi.bentley.com/discovery.asmx that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details. ---> System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
See the Bentley Cloud Service Portal and CONNECTION Client FAQ for instructions on how to configure the proxy or to make an exception list for the sites that it needs to access.
On at least one occasion, upgrading the CONNECTION Client version resolved this issue. You can search for and download the latest CONNECTION Client from the Software Center accessible via the CONNECT Center, connect.bentley.com. See Download Options
In some cases an antivirus software may block the connection. Make sure to add rules to your antivirus software for the applications and for the traffic.
See the Bentley Cloud Service Portal and CONNECTION Client FAQ for more details.
