This has been reported by several customers on CRM versions ranging from 8.1 to 8.3. Users are able to log in, but upon clicking Accounts or Contacts or various other entities, it never completes loading- spinning wheel spins forever.

This is the same issue as caused by Chrome 51 or higher that was reported as defects INFORCRM-10288;INFORCRM-10296;INFORCRM-10297.

This also affects Edge and Internet Explorer v11 on a Windows 10 pc. (Internet Explorer v11 on an operating system where Edge is not installed may still work. )

The Infor CRM Web Client fails to load any pages when using the following browser versions:

Google Chrome v51
Google Chrome v67
Google Chrome v68
Google Chrome v69
Mozilla Firefox v73

This occurs with Infor CRM Versions 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3. Infor CRM Version 8.4 is unaffected.

Steps To Reproduce:
1. Update Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to any of the affected versions
2. Log into the Infor CRM Web Client
NOTE: that pages fail to load, leaving a spinning wheel
3. Press F12 to open Developer tools
NOTE: the following error:
uncaught ReferenceError: normal is not defined

Work Around:
NOTE: The simplest workaround is to use another browser. If another browser is not an option please use the following version dependent workaround:

Update all *-Combined.js files under the inetpub\wwwroot\<Portal>\jscript\Sage folder

8.3
1. Find: ;parser&&”none”!=parser?
2. Replace: ;parser&&”none”!=parser&&”normal”!=parser?

8.2
1. Search for: !=”none”)
NOTE: Keep looking until you find a result with a numeric value similar to ‚Äú1492&&_1492‚ÄĚ before the search value.
2. Take note of the value from ‚Äúif‚ÄĚ to the search value, example: if(_1492&&_1492!=”none”)
3. Find and replace using the value from if to the search value
Example Search and Replace:
Find: if(_1492&&_1492!=”none”)
Replace: if(_1492&&_1492!=”none”&&_1492!=”normal”)

8.1
1. Search for: !=”none”)
NOTE: Keep looking until you find a result with an alpha/numeric value similar to ‚Äú_1ec1&&_1ec1‚ÄĚ
2. Take note of the value from ‚Äúif‚ÄĚ to the search value, example: if(_1ec1&&_1ec1!=”none”)
3. Find and replace using the value from if to the search value
Example Search and Replace:
Find: if(_1ec1&&_1ec1!=”none”)
Replace: if(_1ec1&&_1ec1!=”none”&&_1ec1!=”normal”)
NOTE: that for all three versions that changes might be lost after a build and deploy from Application Architect. Redeploying the site may overwrite the workaround. It is therefor recommended that one backup the files under the inetpub\wwwroot\<Portal>\jscript\Sage folder to preserve the workaround.
Resolution:
The issue described in this article has been addressed in Infor CRM v8.3 Web Core Update 02 for Google Chrome and in Infor CRM v8.2 Web Core Update 03 for Google Chrome.

Infor CloudSuite CRM gives you many options to create customization’s. One of these options is Pick Lists, but beware, not all options can be changed without causing an error. Let’s take a look at some Do’s and Don’ts when managing Pick Lists in CRM.

What you can Do with Pick Lists:

Create your own categories
Create custom steps for a process i.e. Leads, Opportunities etc.
Create your own lead scoring And much more!

What you can’t do with Pick Lists:

Change the following under Opportunity Status: Closed-Won and Closed-Lost
Change the following under Quote Status: New or Won

These options are hard coded into Infor CRM so if you delete or change them it will cause an error when using Opportunities and or Quotes.

Note This blog will continue to be updated as newer versions of Infor CRM are released. Last update as of 2/13/2020

Hello everyone,
If you’ve been trying to reach Infor’s help documents from your web browser and have been receiving¬†a 404 error:¬†¬†Error accessing online help in the web client

Infor did announce this with a Product Advisory Report early this week. This was caused from a change in the name of the Infor server that hosts Infor CRM Online help. This will cause a 404 error when users click the help button to access context sensitive help. To address this, manually edit the URL used by your instance of Infor CRM Web Client.

This has affected Infor CRM versions 8.3 – 8.4 in environments that access help by Infor CRM.

Here is how to update the URL.  Please contact Simplesoft if you would like assistance with this update or are unsure of your current version of CRM.

To edit the name of the server in the online help :

  1. Sign in to your Infor CRM Web Client as Administrator user.
  2. Expand Administration> Office Profiles in the left navigation.
  3. In the Office Profiles List view, select your office.
  4. In the Office Detail view, click the Help tab.
  5. In the Infor CRM Web Client pane, Check the Override Hosted Help check box.
  6. In the Help URL field, edit the help url as follows:
Version of Infor CRM Replace this URL With this URL
Infor CRM v8.4 http://docs.infor.com/crm/8.4.x/ https://docs-classic.infor.com/crm/8.4.x/
Infor CRM v8.3.0.9 http://docs.infor.com/crm/8.3.x/ https://docs-classic.infor.com/crm/8.3.x/
Infor CRM versions 8.3.0.7 or 8.3.0.8 with KB 1941296 applied to modify the appConfig file http://docs.infor.com/crm/8.3.x/ https://docs-classic.infor.com/crm/8.3.x/
Infor CRM versions 8.3.0.7 or 8.3.0.8 without KB 1941296 applied to modify the appConfig file http://docs.infor.com/crm/8.3/ https://docs-classic.infor.com/crm/8.3/
Infor CRM versions 8.3 through 8.3.0.6 http://docs.infor.com/crm/8.3/ https://docs-classic.infor.com/crm/8.3/

 

    1. If your implementation uses Customer Portal, in the Infor CRM Customer portal pane, select the Override Hosted Help check box..
    2. In the Help URL field, edit the help url as follows:
    3. Click Save.
Version of Infor CRM Replace this URL With this URL
Infor CRM v8.4

 

http://docs.infor.com/crm/8.4.x/ https://docs-classic.infor.com/crm/8.4.x/
Infor CRM v8.3 through 8.3.0.9 http://docs.infor.com/crm/8.3/ https://docs-classic.infor.com/crm/8.3/

Note:
Changing “http:” to “https:” is recommended to avoid a security page error displaying to your users. It is still possible to access the help system if your organization request that https is not used.

Comments Off on Infor CRM v8.2.0 Update 03 Has been Released


 

 

June 21st, 2016 by

  Unger_Teri With the advent of new job handling procedures starting in v8.0.0, Infor introduced the Job Services.  The Infor CRM Job Server is used for a number of purposes in the CRM environment, including generating Crystal reports, automating the rollover of past-due activities, performing bulk deletions and record updates, and synchronization of information between CRM and other applications such as Outlook.

     Infor has published an article on troubleshooting this service and as critical a piece of the puzzle that this function is becoming, we felt it prudent to make sure that everyone had access  to this information.  View KB 1579625 РTroubleshooting the Infor CRM Job Services below.

Infor CRM v8.3.0

Update 01 has been released but it does not contain the fix for the job services as listed in the prior versions.  We estimate it will be contained in the next update for v8.3.0.

If you would like to discuss upgrading your system, or to see a free demonstration, please contact Simplesoft Solutions.

KB 1579625  Troubleshooting the Infor CRM Job Service   https://www.inforxtreme.comSolution1579625  (login required)

General Job Server configuration settings

  1. Ensure that the actual executable (SLXJobServer.exe) has been upgraded to 8.1.
  2. Port 1895 must be open for inbound and outbound traffic on the server hosting the Job Server executable as well as the web servers.
  3. SData must be deployed, configured, and functional in order for the Job Service (and thereby the Web Client) to operate properly.
  4. Map the WebDLL user to the Saleslogix Admin user in Administrator. Double-check that the WebDLL user is properly configured on the web servers and the job server itself Рproper permissions and local server rights, etc.
  5. Ensure that the Use Windows Authentication box is checked in Admin > Tools > Options > Passwords
  6. Ensure that in IIS under Authentication for both SLXClient and SData that Anonymous is configured as the same user for the Application Pool (default is WebDLL)
  7. Set the SalesLogix Job Service to log on as WebDLL.
  8. Deploy the SLXJobService portal from within Application Architect. Note that if this is an upgrade they will have to manually add the portal to the Core Portals deployment; this is a mandatory step, as the SLXJobService is no longer an optional component for web environments. Also note the path to which the portal is deployed.
  9. On the server hosting the SalesLogix Job Service, locate the SLXJobServer.exe.config file. Verify that the sage.scheduling.server.tenantRoot value matches the path to which the portal was deployed in step 6.
  10. On each web server, locate the web.config file for the SData portal. In the Sage.Integration.WebAdapters section of the file, ensure that there is an entry for Sage.Platform.Scheduling.SData.Adapter.
  11. On each web server, locate the appSettings.config file for the SData portal. In the Sage.Scheduling.Client.serverURL section, edit the URL from ‘localhost’ to the server name of the server hosting the actual job service.
  12. On each web server, locate the appSettings.config file for the SlxClient portal. Repeat step 9 for this file.
  13. If the Job Server service is installed on a separate server from the SData portal, you will need to run the standard SetSPN steps (as though enabling Windows authentication) on the server hosting the Job Server service.
    • Setspn ‚ÄďA http/SERVER.DOMAIN DOMAIN\SERVICEUSER
    • Setspn ‚ÄďA http/SERVER DOMAIN\SERVICEUSER
  14. If you keep getting an error with an invalid http request, go to the tenant.config file found under ..\Sage\Scheduling\Tenants\SlxJobService make sure the address under <servers> is set as follows:¬† ¬† ¬† <add address=”localhost” port=”11211″ />¬† ¬† ¬†(the local loopback to 127.0.0.1 may be blocked)
  15. Perform an IISRESET
  16. Attempt to start the SalesLogix Job Service.

Executing the Job Service via command console

The SalesLogix Job Server can be run via command line, which outputs a great deal more information than is visible within the Web Client. This can be useful for gathering data for troubleshooting.

  1. In Windows Services, stop the SalesLogix Job Service.
  2. In Task Manager, end the exeprocess if necessary.
  3. Open a command prompt as administrator.
  4. At the command prompt, change directory to the SLXJobServer.exe location.
    Example: cd C:\Program Files (x86)\SalesLogix\
  5. Type the following command:
    SLXJobServer.exe
  6. The Job Service will begin to output information related to any running jobs. At this point, log into the Web Client and execute the failing job.

This can result in a large output of data. To make this easier to capture, output the console information to a file. To to this in step 6, use the following command instead:

SLXJobServer.exe >> c:\SLXJobServer.txt

The text of the command console will be output to this file. Using the >> argument will cause new additions to append to the existing SLXJobServer.txt file.

Enabling Debug-level logging for the Job Server

The Job Server can be set to capture debug-level logging. To enable debug logging:

  1. In Windows Services, stop the SalesLogix Job Service.
  2. In Task Manager, end the exeprocess if necessary.
  3. Navigate to the install location for the Job Server.
    Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\SalesLogix\
  4. Locate and open exe.config.
  5. In the <log4net> section of the config file, locate the following line:<threshold value=”WARN” />
  6. Edit the value here to DEBUG:<threshold value=”DEBUG” />
  7. Save the changes to the config file.
  8. Restart the Job Service.
  9. Attempt to execute the failing job. Debug-level information will be output to the Event Viewer.

Note: This can cause the generation of a large volume of data; debug logging should not be enabled for long periods of time.

Dear Paul,

We have a newly installed user that cannot log into the Saleslogix client. The user is receiving the following error:

Exception ETimeZoneError:

The time zone has not been defined for user U6UJ9A0000XX

Exception location:

[006892BE]{Saleslogix.exe} IsBrandingEnabled

This is a Windows LAN client using v8.1. Can you help us with this error?

Certainly, we can help. After some research, the problem seems to be a missing value in the user profile entry for the timezone column. I am not confident how the setting came to be without a value, but here is what we did to correct the issue.

1. Diagnose the issue.

First review the login process on the client machine and confirm the login issue.

2. Review the problem area.

Second, review the Userinfo table to examine the user record. The SQL below is as-is and may need to be adopted by a person with knowledge of how to run and correct the data use SQL statements:

– Select * from Userinfo

– Next, review the user profile record noted from the error and review the timezone column

– Select * from Userinfo where userid = ‘U6UJ9A0000AB’¬†— change to a known value

3. Identify the resolution steps.

Identify the possible timezone value from the other working users.

– Select distinct timezone from Userinfo

4. Implement the resolution.

UDPATE USERINFO set Timezone = ‘Eastern Standard Time’ where userid = ‘U6UJ9A0000AB’

Change Timezone value and userid value to known and correct values.

5. Confirm the result with the end user.

Meet with the user and make sure that they can now login.

6. What else can be corrected?

Check other possible users for missing timezone values and correct as needed.

– Select * from Userinfo where timezone is null

This following statement will set all NULL timezone values in the userprofiles to one Value, make sure it defined correctly or update one Userinfo record at a time as described above.

– Update Userinfo set timezone = ‘Central Standard Time’ where timezone is null

7. How can the problem be prevented or avoided.

If the timezone value is not set for a user profile then the Network (LAN) client will potentially have problems logging in. These steps will help correct the issue. We did not come to a root cause of the issue, but if it becomes problematic, a KnowledgeSync event or database trigger can be setup to mitigate the issue for the future.  We are here to help!

Dear Paul,

We are having trouble with remote client changes making it ‚Äúto/from‚ÄĚ the remote client during the Synchronization process. Do you have any suggestions for troubleshooting the process?

Yes. Many times synchronization issues can be due to configuration settings or permissions. A good place to start is figuring out where the change files are breaking down and working to resolve from there.  The following is a procedure for figuring out where the change files are failing to move properly. Sometimes an unexpected reboot of servers can cause issues.

How to ‚Äúfollow the TEF‚ÄĚ from remote to Synchronization server:

Remote client Computer tasks

=====================

1. Start on the remote side and already synced up

2. Make sure the remote sync is off and set the Sync Options to not ‚ÄėSend changes‚Äô

3. Have the remote create an account, let’s say ‚ÄėXYZ Corporation‚Äô for generic tracking

– Identify the AccountID on the Detail tab

– confirm it is saved etc. (F5/Shift-F5)

4. Confirm the TEF file created and review in TRNVIEWER if needed

5. Confirm the size of the file and name and make a copy if needed. (Preferred)

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SalesLogix\Sync\Outfiles

C:\ProgramData\SalesLogix\Sync

Main Office Computer tasks

=====================

6. Place the synchronization server service on pause or stop (Preferred)

– Reset option to ‚ÄėSend changes‚Äô on the Remote client

7. Synchronize the Remote client and send changes to the server

8. Confirm the TEF file transferred to the Infiles (FTP/Network) and review in TRNVIEWER if needed

– Confirm the size of the file and name is the same and make a copy if needed

– You can sort by sitecode with the file type to filter by the specific user

9. Cycle the synchronization server manually

10. Confirm/make sure that the new account gets to the host in the client application

Find the Account and confirm the information by the AccountID on the Detail tab

Synchronization Server tasks

=====================

11. Confirm that the Account is being sent to other remotes as appropriate (I.E. Team membership or Account Ownership)

– One thought would be to run the synchronization manually and see the new account going to team members

– An additional task would be to confirm the account on an additional remote client

Remote client Computer tasks (Assuming the Account is received on the remote client)

=====================

12. Create an opportunity for the Account for number 3 step

13. Repeat the steps, for the following of the TEF files (Steps 6 through 10)

14. On the remote, make updates to the account and opportunity

15. Repeat the steps, for the following of the TEF files (Steps 6 through 10)

– Use history actions, create activity changes, key fields etc.

16. On the remote, make a change to the Phone Number for the account and the Probability field on the Opportunity

17. Repeat the steps, for the following of the TEF files (Steps 6 through 10)

Note: We are looking for symptoms where the TEF files are not being created, moved to another folder, (for example Rejected or Archived),

TEF files with errors, sitecode issues, malformed TEF files etc., Keybase issues with a naming mismatch, or missing files waiting for sequence processing during a synchronization of service.

All the settings need to be set back to the original settings after testing.

How to use the TEF Viewer

=====================

Open SalesLogix Transaction Viewer

(Default location is C:\ProgramFiles\SalesLogix\Trnviewer.exe)

Log in as the Admin user

Click the “Foldername” folder and click Open (you can filter to the specific user by choosing them from the bottom dropdown)

Click the TEF in question and click Open

Simplesoft can assist with this process by helping to analyze the TEF files with you.

If you are requesting help from Simplesoft or Saleslogix/Infor CRM, you will need to compress the following files and send with your request:

– syncerrors.txt and log file for the just completed sync from the Host server

Рsyncerrors.txt and syncstatus.txt text files from the Remote client computer and any Saved TEFs on host  (copy of them before they get processed)

It takes some time to work through this list.  Other testing can be performed as needed.

Are you getting this popup error every time you start your computer or Outlook?

“Could not process SendSlx Message:
Unable to connect to the remote server
Inner exception:
Unable to connect to the remote server…” ¬†Blah blah blah

Irritating error with a VERY simple fix!

On your computer navigate to c:\users\(your username)\appdata\roaming\saleslogix\outlook\tempmaildir
(Not sure how to get there?  See below for detailed steps.)

You will see two folders here:  EML and MSG.

What to do now that you have located the folders…

Remove ANY and ALL files within these folders.  They are only meant to temporarily hold the message as you send it in Outlook and any left there will continue to try to record to Infor CRM (Saleslogix).

You have just eliminated the error.  Note: if you get a failed SendSlx email message in the future it will save the file in this location, so save this set of instructions in case it happens again.  The failed SendSlx error can be a result of a temporary outage of your Infor CRM (Saleslogix) database, corrupt data, or internet disconnect.

Here’s how to get there, the details…

Open a Windows Explorer Window
Double-Click on¬†‘Local Disk: (C:)’¬†in the left navigation tree view
Double-Click on¬†‘Users’
Double-Click on ‘your name’
Double-Click on ‘AppData’
or if AppData is not showing then Click on the address bar at the top of the window and add ‘\appdata’ to the end of ‘c:\users\(your username)’
Double-Click on ‘Roaming’
Double-Click on ‘Saleslogix’
Double-Click on ‘Outlook’
Double-Click on ‘TempMailDir’

You should now see the two folders and can complete the steps above.

If you have any questions on this or any other issue, or would like assistance with this process, don’t hesitate to contact us.
