  1. Someone must've pushed the big red button! Good that everything is back up with only ~2 min downtime.
  2. Hi @Gerry, @DanielRi, @Ehsan, @Victor, Real Alex speaking here, many thanks for supporting my colleagues during my and @m.vandun's absence. Due to the timing of our holidays the department was unfortunately left without both the primary and secondary contact, and thus without detailed knowledge of the Hornbill support process. When an incident occurred and we were unreachable my colleagues had to improvise which led to the slight misunderstanding of the use of the support phone number. We will look into either documenting this better or appointing a tertiary internal contact for exactly these situations, rare as they may be. (also, it seems like I really need to change my password ) I am happy to say that I have just updated to build 1042 and rolled back the workaround. Everything is functioning as it should. Best regards, Alex
  3. @Gerry Thanks for clarifying! Our usual employee that manages Hornbill related issues is on vacation, so we were not aware of this. i'm glad we came to a solution!
  4. @DanielRi Your suggestions seem to have fixed the issues, Thank you for your assistance!
  5. @DanielRi First of all thanks for helping us out. I have checked the ID of the existing mailbox and changed it accordingly. This seems to have fixed the mail attempt errors. However we still cannot create new/ or update tickets. According to you there should be something wrong within the BPM operation. The strange thing is that the error is present on all flows/BPM's. Indicating to me that the problem is not within the BPM flow. Do you have any suggestions?
  6. Hello Victor, The setting is as you requested is filled in with Panas Service. I also added a screenshot of the error we currently have on all accounts. Do you have any more idea's how to solve this problem. Our entire service department cannot register anything at the moment.
  7. Hello Hornbill, I would like to inform you of our current problems with Hornbill. we get this error message trying to create or update tickets: An attempt was made to send an email notification however no mailbox has been defined from which to send the email from. A mailbox can be selected from the service manager application settings. We have tried calling your service number to ask for assitance but keep getting disconnected after several minutes. Can you please contact us urgently on +317352xxxxx? or provide assistance through this ticket?
  8. Hi @TrevorKillick, all reading this, Just a quick message to let you know that I have not forgotten about this and will check it soon. Testing this can cause some downtime on the reverse proxy service and thus needs to be planned in the evening (in between my busy busy pizza and Eurovision watching evenings I might add ;-) ) Will post back once I know more!
  9. Hi @TrevorKillick Haha, that would definitely help and that is how we have configured it. For the sake of not having this post show up whenever customers Google our company name I have started slightly anonymising posts. (I noticed some of these posts coming up in my search results). Please find attached a screenshot of the actual configuration. (I should probably have told you that the previous one was not a 1:1 copy of the running config :))
  10. Hi @TrevorKillick Thanks for the suggestion. We do indeed have that in our configuration. Over the span of a month I must have tried 20 variations of ProxyPass configurations with and without instancenames. Our current configuration: SSLStrictSNIVHostCheck off <VirtualHost *:443> ServerAdmin service@domain.nl DocumentRoot /var/www/ Redirect permanent / https://support.domain.nl/InstanceName/ ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined SSLEngine On SSLProxyEngine on SSLProxyVerify none SSLProxyCheckPeerCN off SSLProxyCheckPeerName off SSLProxyCheckPeerExpire off # Set the path to SSL certificate # Usage: SSLCertificateFile /path/to/cert.pem SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/domain_wildcard.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/domain_wildcard.key ProxyRequests Off ProxyPreserveHost Off ProxyPass "/InstanceName/" "https://customer.hornbill.com/InstanceName/" ProxyPassReverse "/InstanceName/" "https://customer.hornbill.com/InstanceName/" ServerName support.domain.nl </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:443> ServerAdmin service@domain.nl DocumentRoot /var/www/ ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined SSLEngine On SSLProxyEngine on SSLProxyVerify none SSLProxyCheckPeerCN off SSLProxyCheckPeerName off SSLProxyCheckPeerExpire off # Set the path to SSL certificate # Usage: SSLCertificateFile /path/to/cert.pem SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/domain_wildcard.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/domain_wildcard.key ProxyRequests Off ProxyPreserveHost Off ProxyPass "/InstanceName/ws" "wss://eurapi.hornbill.com/InstanceName/ws" ProxyPass "/InstanceName/" "https://eurapi.hornbill.com/InstanceName/" ProxyPassReverse "/InstanceName/" "https://eurapi.hornbill.com/InstanceName/" ServerName api.domain.nl </VirtualHost> Just to be clear, our current config does not remove the instance name. Curious to know what I have been doing wrong all this time ;-) Thanks, Alex
  11. Hi Lee, You can have contacts be imported by sending your switch-on contact a filled in version of the .xlsx file he sends you. I also found this wiki article on SQL import, but I haven't tried this. https://wiki.hornbill.com/index.php/SQL_Contact_Import Hope this helps, Alex
  12. Hi all, We ended up reverse proxying the api domain as well for exactly the reasons @Martyn Houghton outlined. Without this one we would get the interface itself but not have it filled with data/services. Is has been running for multiple months now and everything works great. The one thing we have not been able to get to work is reverse proxying the instance name too. (service.hornbill.com/instancename -> support.panas.nl instead of service.hornbill.com/instancename -> support.panas.nl/instancename) Getting this to work as well would be perfect!
  13. Hi @James Ainsworth, Thank you and the team so much for making this possible! Two things that jumped out at me: The logout page is still showing the Hornbill logo (https://i.imgur.com/oo8xQeK.png ) The logo that is shown on the login page is smaller than anticipated, especially when looking at the size of this logo in the portal itself. When opening both logos in a new tab they appear to be the same logo, but the one on the login page seems to be compressed/limited in size. https://i.imgur.com/UqZ6cF7.png vs https://i.imgur.com/QCeP0Et.png ) Curious to know if others are seeing this behaviour as well. Have a nice evening, Alex
  14. Hi @Martyn Houghton, Thanks for staying on top of this! We have our reverse proxy running for a few months now and everything but the login page is branded. We too are eagerly awaiting news regarding this feature. Alex
  15. Hi @Ehsan, Me and @m.vandun would like to say that this is a feature that we too have been waiting on for a long time. As an organisation only supporting external customers we look forward to being able to publish documents for them to use. This will save a lot of phone calls to our servicedesk every day. Thanks, Alex
