Well, faster than I could write the previous article, the Microsoft Dynamics Community team and Microsoft Support have resolved the issue with the Connect gadget on the Microsoft Dynamics GP home page, causing Integration Manager to hang.
As mentioned in the previous article, Integration Manager integrations would hang for users not signed on to Connect on the home page. According to my sources, "After further investigation we have determined that during an operational update the url that [Microsoft Dynamics] GP references now requires /default [path] for the connection to be made. In the past the [Connect] system would automatically render the url as /default".
In layman terms, the operational update seem to have removed the default path that the Connect system used to set up automatically for GP to match and perform the signon. Once the URLs between the two systems were different, GP had no way of finding the sign on page.
Well, hope this all does not sound too confusing and frankly, I am just glad that it got fixed this fast. Once again, kudos to the Microsoft Dynamics GP Support and the Microsoft Dynamics Community teams for their quick call to action.
Until next post!
