"It is required to re-enter user's credentials manually" error
In this article we will review the case when "It is required to re-enter user's credentials manually" error occurs.
Backup/Copy/etc. process in G.A. Suite fails with an error - "It is required to re-enter user's credentials manually, login: email@example.com".
To perform any action G.A. Suite requires connection to the selected PWA. By default, the login and password specified upon adding PWA URL to G.A. Suite, are used for connection and authorization to PWA. These credentials can be found on the Credentials page.
The above-mentioned error occurs, when:
- The issued multi-factor authentication token has expired due to the policies configured by your Company.
- Multi-factor authentication was enabled for the account in question and the credentials in G.A. Suite have not been updated yet.
If you used the default PWA credentials provided on the Credentials page while creating the scheduling profile and the multi-factor authentication was enabled for this account or the token has expired, please refer to this article for information on how to update G.A. Suite credentials with multi-factor authentication enabled.
Please note: If you have a scheduling profile set up for Copying, Documentation, Backup or Projects Publish, and the "Specific credentials" option was selected there, updating credentials for the PWA following the steps described above will not solve the issue, as different credentials are provided in the scheduling profile. In this case, while performing Copying, Documentation, Backup or Projects Publish operations, G.A. Suite will use the credentials specified in the "Specific credentials" option.
