CA Spectrum Alarms do not show in the CA Performance Management Alarm Views.
When select the Alarms Display Dashboard, the Dashboard is displayed but all Views within, such as the Alarms View, the Alarm Details View and others show a spinning progress "Loading..." message.
This continues attempting to load without end until the browser tab is closed, or a new page in the CA Performance Management UI is selected.
CA Performance Management GA release r3.5 and older releases
In a Packet Capture between CAPC and Spectrum while reproducing the issue we see:
Authorization: Basic amdlYWRyaXQ6U3BlY3RydW00MzIxIQ
The working curl command test shows:
Authorization: Basic amdlYWRyaXQ6U3BlY3RydW00MzIxIQ==
When we use "base64 -d" on the commandline, the first Authorization value returns the username:password. At the same time it throws an error about invalid input.
The Authorization value for the working curl command shows the username:password with no further information. That is expected.
This proves CAPC is not sending the correct value.
Further confirmation is the successful wget command run recommended below in the solution details.
This command was used to validate this: echo -n "authstring" | base64 -d
