QlikSense June 2019: Browser login prompt dialog box after successful login (KNOWN BUG)

After installing June 2019, users started noticing that when they login, they now get a browser login prompt after the "hub" is about half-done loading. This is the dialog you get with HTTP Authentication; the same one you get with the default Virtual Proxy when you're using Windows Authentication.

After doing a quick network debug in Firefox, I found the culprit. Eventually, I found that it's a known issue: https://support.qlik.com/articles/000078411 If it annoys you enough, the article lists a workaround.

The problem is with the new-ish "Insight Bot" feature. When it goes to fetch its config, it fails to target the current Virtual Proxy.

E.g.

  1. Say you successfully login to: https://{your-server}/MyVirtualProxy/hub/my/work
  2. A request will be made to: https://{your-server}/api/hub/v1/insight-bot/config
  3. That'll respond with a 302 (Authenticate at this location...), because it's not going to the Virtual Proxy where you're authenticated.
  4. The 302 will send you to:  https://{your-server}/internal_windows_authentication/?targetId={guid}
  5. And that's what causes the login prompt to pop up in your browser.

Sorry about that. My link got mangled with some extra spaces at the end. It should work now.
