  • Closed as unreproducible.

Error description

  • When using OIDC authentication and running a non-interactive
    report (classic viewer) with prompts in the background that
    returns an error (any error), closing the error message (either
    by clicking OK or clicking the X in the top right) will cause an
    unnecessary call to the OIDC completeAuth.jsp.
    
    This is a problem when using OIDC providers that rely on
    authorization code flows where the code can expire. In this
    scenario, it will result in a "CA Initialization Error" because
    the auth code has expired by this time.
