Resolve "There is an issue with the connection" error

Overview

Issues such as a change in the Code42 service account credentials can cause a data connection to enter an Error status. When such unknown errors occur, this message is displayed in the details for the data connection in the Code42 console:

There was an issue with the connection to <Display Name>. Code42 is not monitoring activity. 

Follow the directions provided in the error message to return the data connection to Monitoring.

This article provides more information to assist you in resolving the error. 

Resolve the connection issue

Salesforce

  1. Deauthorize the data connection.
  2. (Optional) Revoke the Code42 OAuth-connected app.
    When you deauthorize the connection, Code42 automatically deletes its authorization and connection information, including any OAuth tokens required to access your Salesforce environment. However, you can also revoke the Code42 app in Salesforce to increase security.
    1. Log in to Salesforce using the credentials assigned to the Code42 service account.
    2. In the upper-right corner of the screen, click the profile icon and then click Settings.
    3. In the navigation menu, go to My Personal Information > Connections.
    4. Locate the Code42 application in the OAuth Connected Apps table and then click Revoke in the Action column.
  3. Verify the Code42 service account's details:
    1. Verify that the profile has the correct permissions.
    2. Verify that the user's username and password credentials are valid and have not expired.
  4. Set up the data connection again.

  1. Deauthorize the data connection.
