Web IDE suddenly refuse login [Bad credentials]

I use HANA Express 2.0 (virtual machine) on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications 12 SP1 to develop a demo application.

Web IDE works during the day but every morning I experience a login problem. In fact when I enter XSA_DEV credentials I get the error (browser console):

Request URL: https://hxehost:39032/uaa-security/
1. Request Method: POST
2. Status Code: 400 Bad Request
3. Remote Address: xx.xx.xx.xx:39032

While the response is (browser console):
badCredentials : true
errorId: 0
errorText:"Bad credentials"

I tried parameters ?settings=ignore , ?settings=ignore and ?hc_reset but the problem remains. The only solution I found is to restart the VM which takes >45 minutes to start again the webide service.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!

I have the very same issue even with HXE SPS 01. The only workaround is to restart the whole virtual machine.

Hello John:

The next time this happens, can you please check the webide log to see if there have been any errors reported? You can do that using the xs client application. Here's a command you can execute to pipe the log out to a file in your home directory:

xs logs webide --all > ~/webide.log

Please share the results here in the forum.

Also, you may want to try just restarting the webide application instead of restarting your whole vm next time to see if it addresses the problem.

Are you running any other xsa applications in your browser at the same time you try to access the webide. If so, it's possible your browsers cache is causing this problem by attempting to use your cached password instead of the one you're typing in for the webide. If you are, and you're using chrome, just open an incognito chrome window before trying to log in to the webide.
