Browser is redirected to login page when form is added and saved

If you are directed to the Confluence login page after adding a frevvo form to a Confluence page, frevvo may not be honoring the the session id in the request. This may be because the default setting for the validateClientProvidedNewSessionId changed with the upgrade to tomcat 8.5.16 in frevvo version 7.3+. Verify that the validateClientProvidedNewSessionId parameter is included in the <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\catalina\localhost\frevvo.xml file and that it is set to "false" to resolve the issue.

  3. Double Click on the FrevvoSubs item to open the “Edit ‘Frevvosubs’ Macro page.
  4. Update the width to 900 px and click the Save button.
  5. Click on the Update button at the bottom right corner of the page. Now page will be able to display the form properly.

Who can Modify Workflow Tasks?

Usually a tenant admin or workflow admin can serve as a "Help Desk Admin", and may modify workflow tasks by reassigning, resetting, or aborting them. In frevvo, this permission is available to any tenant admin and users assigned the Access Control "Who can Administer the Workflow" permission. In Confluence, only the one tenant admin that is mapped to your Confluence admin will be have this permission by default. If you have additional administrators, be sure to add the to the Form Editors group or give them this permission in the Access Control "Who can Administer the Workflow?" setting for each workflow.
