Riva Insight (Login with Salesforce): There Was an Error Authenticating You. Authentication Error Occurred. Error Verifying OAuth Token. Please Contact Your Riva Administrator.

  • Updated

Applies to Riva Insight Server (Login with Salesforce), when using a proxy to filter web traffic.



When an end user attempts to login to Riva Insight using Salesforce authentication, the following message appears:

Connection Error
There was an issue contacting Salesforce.

Additional information:
There was an error authenticating you. Authentication error occurred. Error verifying OAuth token.
Please contact your Riva Administrator.

Riva Insight server logging may show this message:

ERROR [11] [(null)] [CL: AuthSalesforce; M:Authenticate] [SFAuthError] System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond


If a CRM connection used by Insight Server has a proxy set, the proxy connection string needs to be added to the Insight server settings as well.


  1. On the Insight server, add this key to webConnectionStrings.config with the correct values:

<add name="Insight.HttpProxy" connectionString="Address={AddressUri};BypassProxyOnLocal={True|False};UseDefaultCredentials={True|False};UserName={UserName};Password={Password};Domain={Domain};" />

  1. Restart IIS Server.

If the issue persists, contact the Riva Success Team.
