Detailed Description and Symptoms
Can't log into Release Manager using Automation Engine user
No existing connection was found for ConnectInfo [user=admin, token=<password>] call openConnection() first
when trying to select an Agent from the ReleaseManager GUI
For a Release Manager user to connect to an Agent in the Automation Engine, the Automation Engine user needs to have a flag set to be able to access the Automation Engine from the Release Manager.
To do this we ran the createUser.ps1 script (from the release package\utilities folder)
.\createUser.ps1 -URL _http://myurl.com -User 250/myuser/mydomain -email firstname.lastname@example.org -displayname MyUser
whereas <client>/<user>/<department> is the user you want to login with.
This will enable the Automation Engine user to log into Release Manager and connect the Agent to a Hostgroup.
