IdP admin console will not open and displays a blank screen in environments that use a Proxy

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • On Premises
  • SecureAuth Idp Version affected:  9.3, 19.07


    In environments where internet access is only available via a proxy server, the IdP admin console will not open and gets stuck on a blank white screen. 



    IdP version 9.3 uses a feature in IIS called ARR (Application Request Routing).  This works in a similar fashion to a proxy so when behind another proxy server it needs to be configured to chain the proxy requests.

    Note, it's important to be aware that IIS ARR does not allow or proxy credentials so the proxy being used must allow unauthenticated proxy access from all IdPs.



    1. Take a snapshot of the IdP.

    2. Open IIS Manager, click on the server name and then Application Request Routing Cache.

    3. In the right-hand pane click "Server Proxy Settings".

    4. Scroll down until you see Proxy Chain and enter the proxy details here, then click Apply.

    5. Ensure that all IPs documented here are allowed through the proxy:

    6. Try the admin console once more.
