Session Expired error on login

Problem 

Users/Administrators cannot log into the OneFuse Platform. User will receive an error prompt indicating Session Expired on the top banner.


Cause

This is caused by the OneFuse Platform system time not being synchronized to the NTP Servers causing the default session timeout to trigger and deny user login.


Affected Versions

  • OneFuse 1.0.+
