Dynamics GP Forum Missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I don't see the Dynamics GP forum anymore; I see my threads to it, but when I click the link it says I'm not authorized to view the thread??  I see many other forums, but not the Dynamics GP forum.  Did something on my account change, or is that forum down for maintenance or something?  Thanks in advance.

  • There was recently a similar thread. Are you trying to access a Partner forum? If so, please make sure that your Partner status is recent as I don't see 'Partner' near your name.

  • They should add a proper error message on the page instead of a completely unhelpful "You are not authorized to perform this action." Something like "The forum you are trying to access is for MSFT Partners only. Make sure your partner status is up to date ... etc..."

    There was a similar issue a while ago with the same error message on deleted threads. People were wondering why they don't have authorization to a thread when it actually had just been deleted. Nowdays it says "Thread has been deleted" or something similar.

    (Edit. Tried to propose Naomis answer a couple of dozen times (with IE 9 and latest Opera), kept getting the Unexpected Error. Never happened to me before. Naomi, the forum software has a grudge against you.)

    (Edit 2. Looks like the post is finally proposed, yet no proposed text in the post or activity in my profile or Naomis. Propose link also gone.)

  • Yes, it definitely has a serious grudge against me. In last 30 of my answers I never got a single activity notification or a point for them. They all were without a history.

  • Thanks Naomi, you were right!!  The MS Partner Network Membership just expired, and I'm looking into it now.  For anyone interested, your partnership details can be found here:

    Thanks again Naomi; I can quit pulling my hair out!

  • Looks like the proposed answer border & icon (from thread view) have disappeared. Tried to propose as answer again, after a long wait (looking at the loading circle) got the Unexpexted Error again. Subsequent clicks popped the error right away. (Same behavior as before)

    Can't keep clicking any more since Ross already marked the thread answered. Looks like it worked for him.

    (Edit. Replying and editing has worked without issues)
