Fixing SCI OneSource / Lawson Portal Report Problems

When dealing with the report section you may be thrown into a loop of requests of username and password. To fix this:

1.    Reset your Internet Explorer's Advanced Settings to Default

2.    Under the Security tab add these sites to your trusted sites list:

3.    Set the Trusted Sites Security Level to Low

4.  Select the Privacy tab and add those sites to the Always Accept cookies list.

If you use Internet Explorer 8 after clicking on the Reports button you get a Security Warning message box asking if you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely, click No.

To prevent this message coming up (from the blog HTTPWatch -  thank you to the author of that excellent article!):

  • Going  to Tools->Internet Options

  • Select the ‘Security’ tab

  • Click the ‘Custom Level’ button

  • In the ‘Miscellaneous’ section change “Display mixed content” to Enable

  • In the Downloads Section set "Automatic prompting for file downloads . . ." enable
