Description Shauns 2016-05-11 04:53:31 UTC
When using the "Open Remote File" option from the File menu and selecting "Add Service", then select LotusLive Files, enter a valid logon and password, press the refresh button on repository and an error appears stating "The specified device is invalid".

This may be due to the use of SAML for authentication for logons now.

Would appreciate if someone can test to understand what the issue with the logon is.

In addition, the service is no longer called LotusLive, it is now called IBM Connections Cloud. This needs to be updated.

Please always report a single issue per bug report.

I suppose this should be reported at https://github.com/tdf/libcmis as we seem to lack a Bugzilla component for libcmis.


Re: the name:

According to this page [1], the service’s new name is “IBM Connections Files on Cloud”. I’ve also seen the terms “IBM Connections Files Cloud” and “IBM Connections Files” mentioned in other IBM pages. Which is the proper name?!
The relevant string is this [2].

Hello,
Is this bug fixed?
If so, could you please close it as RESOLVED FIXED?
Comment 5 Shauns 2016-09-26 08:31:08 UTC
The issue of logging into Connections Cloud is still unresolved. Error is "The Specified Device is Invalid" when using Writer 5.2.1.2 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS when selecting "Open remote file"

The 2nd part of the issues that relates to the name of the service has been correctly renamed as "IBM Connections Cloud".
