[WORKFLOW] An error occurred while attempting to authenticate


I've upgraded from 4.7.3 to and everything looks fine.

But in catalina.out I sometimes see this error:

ERROR [com.netiq.idm.auth.oauth.OAuthRestFilter] (https-jsss-nio-8543-exec-10) [WORKFLOW] An error occurred while attempting to authenticate.

It always comes in tree where where only difference is the exec number which is 10, 11, og 12.

I can't find a pattern for it's appearance. Some time it shows after succesfull login. At other times when a workflow has been started. But I can't replicate it consistently.

Is it cosmetic or do I need to take it serious?

It is likely that the access token, used to auth to REST has timed out, notifying you, and then getting a renewed one and trying again.

So keep an eye on it, and see if it interferes.

Ah. Make sence.
Thank you - I'll keep an eye on it.
