Troubleshooting Dynamic Forms

User gets error when opening form

Sometimes a user will get the following error when opening a form:

Most of the time this indicates that there is a problem with an API call, not in how it is set up, but how in actually retrieving the data from CX.  To troubleshoot this issue:

  1. Open up a command prompt window on a computer on campus.  Ping illuminate.letnet.net.  If you get a healthy ping, proceed to step 2
  2. Open up Postman (login information is the PS Security folder/LastPass).
  3. Test any of the APIs and see if it returns any information.
    1. If information is returned, contact Dynamic Forms support to find out if they are encountering an issue with APIs.
    2. If no information is returned when expected or an error is returned, contact N2N support to find out why the APIs are not working.  Sometimes there is an error on their side, sometimes they need to remote in and connect to our server to investigate the issue.
