Error #2048 in Infoview when refreshing an Xcelsius dashboard that uses QAAWS with a secure WSDL URL

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a dashboard in Xcelsius
  2. Add a QAAWS connection
  3. Import a WSDL URL that is a secure URL (i.e. https://<servername>:<port>/dswsbobje/qaawsservices/<queryname>?WSDL)
  4. Export the Xcelsius file as Flash (SWF)
  5. View the Flash file in an I.E. browser -> no error is raised
  6. View the Flash file in a Firefox browser -> Error #2048 is raised
  • Xcelsius 2008
  • Firefox 3.0
  • Internet Explorer 6.0 SP2


As the WSDL URL in the QAAWS connection uses a secure URL the security certificate needs to be installed for Firefox


Note. I.E. uses the certificate that is on the computer


  1. Copy the url from the QAAWS in a Firefox browser
  2. Install on the computer the security certificate for the URL when prompted by clicking on the 'Yes' tab
