Troubleshooting login issues in BMC Digital Workplace

This topic describes how to troubleshoot the BMC Digital Workplace application login issue. While troubleshooting this issue, network logs and BMC Digital Workplace logs in debug mode are useful.

You can capture network logs using the Fiddler web debugging tool . You can also capture network traffic using F12 (Developer tool) When Fiddler is not an option, you can capture traffic by pressing F12 for your browser's developer tools. See the  BMC Communities knowledge article DOC-49220  for more information.

Issue symptoms

You might see one of the following symptoms:

  • While logging in, the following error appears: “Incorrect user name or password (1006)”
  • While logging in with an administrator account, you receive a #not_an_admin error:
  • A Remedy application password is changed, and you cannot log in to BMC Digital Workplace.

Diagnosing and reporting an issue


Make sure that User Details Pluggable Provider parameter is enabled at the database level.

  1. Log in to the BMC Digital Workplace database.
  2. Access the DWP_SYSTEM.PROVIDER table, and set the User Details Pluggable Provider value from 0 to 1.

Check the BMC Digital Workplace logs. You will see the following errors in it.

10:45:07.273 | https-jsse-nio-8443-exec-5     | RID: 84309 | ERROR   | c.b.b.m.service.SecurityService | User fairoz.gadad-v fails to login. {"error":"MOBILITY_ERROR_LOGIN","errorCode":1006,"defaultMessage":"Incorrect username or password.","additionalMessage":null,"detailMessage":"ERROR (103): The length of the name parameter (or name field in a parameter) is longer than the maximum allowed length.","ARConnectionProblem":false}

If BMC Digital Workplace administrator user cannot access the admin URL and it is redirecting to #not_an_admin, make sure that the MyIT_Admin and MyIT_Super_Admin groups are assigned to the user.

  1. Log in to the BMC Remedy server using the mid tier URL.
  2. Open the CTM:People form.
  3. Search for the user and make sure that the MyIT_ Admin and MyIT_Super_Admin groups are assigned.

While checking the groups in the CTM:People form, make sure that the MyIT_Admin and MyIT_Super_Admin group names include the underscore.

You cannot just rename group names on the Group and User form. Instead, you must use the following queries directly from the database:

select schemaid from arschema where name = 'Group'
select * from T36 where C105='MyIT_Admin'

update T36 set C105='MyIT Admin' where C105='MyIT_Admin'

After you make these changes, the user will be able to access to the BMC Digital Workplace Admin console.

If the Remedy application password is changed, review the dwp.log file.

  1. Review the dwp.log file, and you will find the following error:

    16:51:05.524 | http-nio-8080-exec-1 | RID: 17710 | OpId: 14908f06-12f5-4174-8d96-f4019a | ERROR | c.b.b.u.a.c.f.AbstractFormWrapper | Couldn't load entry from 'User' form due of error:

    com.bmc.arsys.api.ARException: ERROR (623): Authentication failed; Remedy Application Service
  2. Update the AR system server references in BMC Digital Workplace.

For more more how to update AR System server references, see the BMC Communities knowledge article DOC-118041 .

Check the BMC Digital Workplace application logs.

  1. Replicate the issue.
  2. Check the trace or debug log for errors.

    You can find the files in the BMCDigitalWorkplaceInstallationFolder/DWP/DWP/logs folder.
