Update IdM Eclipse Plug-In from 8.4.11 to 8.4.13: Get Error

We get the following error when clicking on a process folder in Eclipse after updating to 8.4.13 IdM plugin.

Retrieving Process Folder failed


I've logged onto different computers that have IdM plug-ins 8.4.11 and 8.4.10 on Eclipse and I don't have this issue when trying with multiple ids.

Is this an issue with the plug-in and how to resolve? Everything else is the same between the computers where it works and the computer it doesn't work except for the IdM plugin.

Is there something we have to keep in sync between the IdM components/patches with the eclipse plug-in version?

How do you downgrade the IdM plug-in version on Eclipse (because it was working before updating versions) on the same computer?

    Hi Jon,

    we had the same issue and updated IDM and DB components to the newest patch level. It is working now for us.

    Workaround is to revert to an patch of the IDM Developer Studio:

    Best regards,

    Holger -

    I ended up getting a colleagues version of Eclipse on my computer to resolve the issue. Thank you lots for the information (particularly SAP note 2450996). It's easier to revert back the Eclipse version than to install new patches (which requires a lot of regression testing).
