2097887 - Receive"alt=Successfactors" and "Launch Error" when launching content

Symptom

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Launching content from an icontent.do url displays error:

Launch Error.jpg

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Load content onto your iContent server.
  2. Build a content object which launch method url is pointing to this content:
    Example url:
    /learning/user/onlineaccess/icontent.do?Course=CUSTOM&url=/self-managed/folder/test.html
  3. Create an item and add this content object.
  4. Assign this item to a user
  5. log in to the user and launch the item.

Cause

The URL prefix from the deployment location has not been set correctly.

OR

iContent was not fully setup.

  • Although the content was on the iContent server, there are settings in LMS that need to be added:
    System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > ICONTENT
  • Settings that caused issue:
    #Default configuration - Production
    enabled=false
    ## iContent account configuration
  • To use iContent, you need to enable this configuration.

Resolution

There can be 3 scenarios on what the resolution is.

Scenario 1 - URL prefix issues

Please check the instructions from KBAs 2396085 and 2416189

Scenario 2 - iContent setup prior to 2018:
