Error description

  • When using an URL with "#", for example:
    
    https://localhost/cqweb/#/Test-Test/TTT/QUERY/33554464&format=HT
    ML&noframes=false&format=HTML&loginId=admin&password=admin&versi
    on=cqwj
    
    For the first time we use the URL above, it gives us the
    following message:
    
    "You used a bookmark with automatic log in, but automatic login
    is disabled at this site. Please replace your bookmark with this
    link"
    
    Note: From the ClearQuest Web on Site Configuration, Security
    Options we are using: "Disable Persistent Cookies", "Allow
    credentials in REST URIs" and "Reuse Sessions for REST URIs"
    with any of all the 3 options doesn't make any change.
    
    If we open a new browser tab and use the same URL, it will work.
    
    If we close the browser and try to use the same URL it gives us
    the message again. Opening a new browser tab (second tab) it
    works.
    
    The behavior is the same for all browsers. We can see this
    behavior with ClearQuest 8.0.1.9, 8.0.1.8 and 8.0.1.4.
    
    For ClearQuest 8.0.1.3 the URL using "#" works correctly.
    
    Something was changed from ClearQuest 8.0.1.3 to the new
    ClearQuest versions.
