Since installing the Flowdock Windows app a couple of years ago Flowdock would open at startup and automatically login with my CA SSO login. But since the update to version 1.0.3 it is making me login fresh at every startup. How do I get it to automatically login again?
Hey there - I'm not able to reproduce this issue, and I just downloaded and installed 1.0.3 to test! Seems to keep my AC login just fine.
Have you restarted since the install? Any automatic clearing of browser cache happening? FD shares browser cache ...
Yessir. I shutdown everyday, and start fresh every morning. No auto cache clearing I know of.
In your test, did you have it set to auto-startup? So it comes up with windows first thing? I'm thinking it's because I haven't logged into anything in a browser yet.
Hmm let me try auto-startup
Well, I just tested after restart with the auto-startup when I login to Windows, and it logged me right in.
However, I was able to break the login by clearing the cache from within Flowdock. I right-clicked, went to Developer Tools --> Application then cleared storage and cookies. That logged me out. I do believe it is shared with Chrome so I wonder if Chrome is blocking saved logins or persisting sessions on your machine?
I typically use Firefox. I haven't had this problem with other things. And didn't have the problem with flow dock before the upgrade/update. I note that there's a checkbox to keep me logged in with the other logins but not the agile Central and one other. I don't know. Will ping you in the morning when I login. Thanks John.
