Content & Localization Verbiage Changes Are Not Working

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • On Premises
  • SecureAuth version affected: 9.x onwards


    Changes are not showing up once C&L verbiages are changed. The changes are saved in the .RESX successfully, but the resource compiler is not pushing the new builds so the web page does not show the updated text.


    There are numerous causes for this to happen; see this article for other examples. In this KB we will cover permissions.


    In 9.x, the Admin realm runs as an IIS AppPool identity. Where as previously, it ran as a local account. The AppPool identity needs permissions.


    1. On the IdP, navigate to C:\Windows\Temp

    2. Rename or Remove the file ".NETFramework,Version=v4.5.AssemblyAttributes.cs"


    3. Try to update the Verbiage again.

    Only proceed to the next steps if it still doesn't work after step 3. Also, ensure you have a backup/snapshot of the machine before proceeding.

    4. Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA

    5. Right click on MachineKeys and select Properties | Security

    6. Click Edit

    7. Click Add

    8. Click Locations and change the location to the local machine

    9. In the object names section, Type

    iis apppool\secureauth0pool


    10. Click OK

    11. Give this Full Control and click OK

    12. Click OK

    13. Try to update the Verbiage again.
