After configuring P6 Professional through Cloud Connect using SAML/SSO, configuring an alias to the cloud connect URL using the Database Configuration wizard generates the following error when testing connection:
"Bad alias/connection name."
Note: the URL is valid and does successfully allow a user to login through SAML even though the connection testing reports an error.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
- Configure P6 Professional Cloud Connect for SAML
- Run the P6 Professional Database Configuration and create/update a Cloud Connect alias to connect to the cloud connect URL
- Note the error which occurs
