How to troubleshoot admin login issues


Before opening a CB Support case, the following steps can be taken:

  1. Check the environment status at
  2. Is Status page showing the production instance as 'Operational'?
  3. What URL is being used to log on? Does the URL match the assigned production instance URL (ReferenceList of the Dashboard URLs )

If above steps have not corrected the issue, please Open a Support Case and the investigation will continue with investigating:

  1. Does the organization exist in the production environment? 
  2. Does the email being used to login exist as an administrator for that organization?
    1. If not, is any Administrator able to add another admin to the organization?
  3. Is a specific authentication type enabled and functioning (SAML/SSO, two-factor authentication)?
    1. Authentication may need to be disabled if not configured or functioning correctly.
