Q: What should I do when authentication during login fails?
A: Try clearing your browser cookies. By default, SupportLink will try to automatically authenticate you, looking for any active sessions from any of Progress Sitefinity corporate websites.
Q: What should I do when the session has timed out?
A: Click on Return to Login page to attempt to log you in again with the provided credentials
Q: What does it mean when there is a provisioning problem with my account?
A: This means you are not yet granted access to the SupportLink portal. When a customer is added as a licensed user to a Sitefinity license, Progress Sitefinity grants SupportLink access within 48h. Thus, when you are granted access as a licensed user and then immediately try to log in to SupportLink, there is a considerable chance that the request for access is not processed yet.
