Reproducing the Issue

Please be sure that before you open a Support case with Product Support, you have performed the following sanity checks on your configuration/data, bearing in mind most issues are due to a configuration issue:

  • The feature is correctly enabled, as described in the related Implementation Handbook.
  • Correct permissions are granted to the administrator/end-user to be able to use the tool (as specified in the Implementation Handbook).
  • Has the configuration changed recently?
    • Was it working before the recent changes?
    • Can the recent change be undone so retesting can be performed?
  • Can the issue be reproduced for just one or multiple admins?
    • If the issue is reproducible for all, it is likely to be a permissions issue.
    • If it seems to be related to one or a small admin population, the next step is to check and verify the permissions are correctly granted.
  • Is the data correct? (Ensure that any recent configuration changes you have made have not caused any data inconsistencies.)
  • Have you verified that, according to the related Implementation Handbook, the feature is configured according to Best Practices recommended in the handbook?
  • Is the Config UI you are using a Custom Config UI you have created?
    • Have you tested with the most recent Config UI?
      • Download the latest Config UI/Config UI Rules/Config UI Rule Messages from the SuccessStore, and test with this first. You may find the issue is with the UI you have configured.
