No cached manifest found - ERROR MESSAGE

No cached manifest found - ERROR MESSAGE

  

I am building a mobile app (iOS & Android). For some reason, when I click the blue arrow button to run it in the browser emulator, I get this error on the page (see screenshot).

In the log, the error message is "No cached manifest found ..." I have pasted the Service Center message below as well.

I've tried clearing the browsing history, cache, and cookies in Chrome BUT that did not help.

Any ideas???

Hello Bruce,


When I try to access https://bpb.outsystemscloud.com/PreviewInDevices/?IsMobilePreview=True&DeviceName=Smartphone&URL=/ICD2_0Concept (which I believe it's your URL for preview in devices), I don't get any error - I'm getting a login screen.


Can you confirm that this is the correct URL/intended behavior?


Thanks

Armando, yes that is the correct URL and yes, you should get a login page.

However, that's not what is happening to me. Now I am wondering if it has something to do with the way we have our work laptops and network configured. We have to run EVERYTHING through our work LAN or through the corporate VPN.

ALSO - I only get this error when I am trying to preview a MOBILE app. The web app preview works great.

Does that help you? 

Any clues?


Assuming that you have 3G/4G on your cellphone, have you tried with it? Or maybe using it as an hotspot and try on your computer?

Yes, it works fine on my personal devices when on 4G or on Wifi just fine.

But, on my WORK laptop only the mobile preview will NOT work. It must be something special how OutSystems is rendering the mobile app in the previewer. Maybe the work laptop has some special control on Chrome - OR - the network traffic is getting blocked somehow perhaps.


And what about this link: https://bpb.outsystemscloud.com/ICD2_0Concept? It's the mobile app without the "preview".

That "direct" URL works on my personal devices - BUT - again, does NOT work on my WORK laptop.

However, I did notice that when I tried it on my work PC that I saw in the browser status bar "Waiting for DGextension" ... 

I just googled dgextension ... some say it is a true enterprise extension, others say its a virus!

Hmmmm ...?

Why don't you call the IT guys then? :D


"Who you gonna call? IT Busters!"

Yeah ... that's my next stop now. Who knows, maybe I have a virus!

To help me troubleshoot with them ... do you know what the difference is between the WEB and the MOBILE solutions? You see, the WEB apps work fine via direct URL as well as in the previewer.

But, it's only the MOBILE apps that have the problem and I have 3 mobile apps so far and they all have the same issue ... so, there must be something unique about the MOBILE app URLs or pages, etc, yes?

For instance, the mobile apps "require" the ability for your browser to support local cache - if you try to open the link on Firefox, you'll get the message.

As usual, there are more differences between Web and Mobile - I don't know all of them - but one of those items might imply that one works while the other doesn't.

Sorry for not being great help here.
