"Internal Server Error" when I try to save

    Hi Adrianna,

    I am able to replicate the issue. I have logged it as issue #180651.

    There is a bit of a clumsy workaround you can use today to get past this. When this error happens:

    1. Click the "Add Data Source..." button
    2. A wizard will pop up
    3. Click "Next"
    4. Click "Cancel"
    5. Now you will be able to save

    The underlying problem is that there is an expired token being sent on the Save request. These specific workaround steps provide a way to force that token to update.

    Hi Adrianna

    This is the first I've heard of this issue on save. We've seen issues where loading specific reports containing Rich Text Controls throws this error. I'd agree this is serious, not being able to save a report would make the product much less useful.

    Please give us some details:

    • which version of VSR are you using (Designer > Help > bottom of panel)
    • Which Identity provider are you using, AGOL or AGE on-prem (and which version)?
    • are all reports affected, or only specific ones?
    • Regarding your order of steps to reproduce this issue, is this accurate:
    1. Open existing report OR create new report
    2. modify report (move item in designer, or modify any activity's properties)
    3. File > Save
    4. user sees error

    Hi Gareth, 

    I am using VertiGIS Studio Reporting Version 5.16.0, accessed through

    AGOL as identity provider

    all reports are affected, my coworker is having the same issue as well

    I will start editing an existing report, save repeatedly and after about 25 minutes I will try and save and get the "Internal server error" red banner across the bottom. I believe it is logging me out/expiring when this happens and I'm not sure why.

    Thank you Ryan!!! That is super helpful, thank you for logging the issue as well:)

    Thanks Ryan!

    Another alternative workaround would be to use the Export menu, which gets a fresh token in the background. You also get the added benefit of a 'backed up' export of the report.

    1. File > Export
    2. Export report.
    3. Now you will be able to save.

    Just an update that this issue has been fixed for the 5.17 release and will be available in a couple weeks.

    Hello, I am now having a very similar issue with online version 5.19.0. When I save-as a report I get this error when I edit it and try to save my edits. I have tried using VertGIS in chrome an microsoft edge, getting the issue in both. Seems to be necessary to completely close out and re-login when I save-as a report, which is quite inconvenient.

    I have also gotten the error when trying to save: "Item does not exist or is inaccessible" , and then it closes me out of my report and I am unable to open it or edit it again. I have found that logging out of portal and then re-opening the reporting designer and logging back in has helped.
