ERROR 2015-10-12 10:50:17,674 [http-bio-90-exec-8] clarity.ui (clarity:user:712094124__EEAD9B7F-4E2F-4BCB-B6EF-0209BFBB8CA2:none) UI_MSG[:Mon Oct 12 15:13:42 UTC 0530 2013:OnError called--Client Side Exception 
java.lang.Exception: VXMLRequest failed.  HTTP status code was: 503

Cause:

Caused by CLRT-72405

Resolution:

At this time there is no plan in making any changes to this area of the product, please continue to use the easy workaround when issue occurs.

Workaround:

1. Manually refresh internet browser.  

2. This error can indicate a session time out, there are a few things that can be checked to minimize this issue:  

  • If you have Single Sign On (SSO) enabled, check the timeout setting for SSO  
  • Check the PPM/Clarity timeout setting via Administration, General Settings: System Options, check the setting for 'Minutes Of Inactivity Until Logout' 
  • 'The Minutes Of Inactivity Until Logout' must be set less than the timeout set for your SSO (for example if your SSO timeout is set to 15 minutes then your PPM timeout should be 14 minutes or less)  
  • If you navigate to any portlet and you get this error, check to see if it is returning a large amount of data that is exceeding the timeout setting either on the SSO side or PPM  
  • If you don't have SSO and still get the error, then check the browser timeout setting set by your IT administrators and ensure that the Browser timeout setting is greater then the PPM timeout setting
