Troubleshooting / FAQs

I get the following: {"status":"failed","message":"Error in fetching the token from the OAuth provider."}

  • Make sure you have checked one or both of the following checkboxes in the “HubSpot App configuration” setting.
  • If your IdP needs the credentials in the header, you will need to check the Header checkbox.
  • Save the configuration and then click test configuration.
  • If this does not solve your problem, you can try selecting both the Header and Body checkboxes.
  • Likewise, if your IdP needs the credentials in the body, you have to select the Body checkbox.
  • Once you have checked the appropriate checkboxes, you will get the attributes table in the test configuration window.

My test configuration was successful but when I try to log in I am stuck in a redirect loop.

There are a couple of reasons why this can happen:

1. Caching is enabled on the website.

When auto-redirect is enabled, the user is redirected to IDP login page and after logging in back to the main site but as caching is enables it redirects to the IDP login page hence a loop.

2. HTTP/HTTPS discrepancy:

This happens when HTTPS is not enforced on the site but is configured on IDP side with HTTPS URL.This can be solved by enforcing HTTPS on the site by defining a redirect rule in the .htaccess file or at the Apache level.

3. Cookie adulteration:

The cookie created by the plugin after logging in the user is altered by another plugin which causes the user to not log in WordPress site but the session is created on IDP.

Getting Error : ‘Invalid Response’

There can be 2 possibilities:

  1. Either your App supports OAuth 2.0 protocol and you’ve configured with OpenID Connect protocol and vice-versa. In this case, if you’ve configured the App using Custom OAuth2.0 App, reconfigure it with Custom OpenID Connect App and if you’ve configured the App using Custom OpenID Connect App, reconfigure it with Custom OAuth 2.0 App. It should fix this issue for you.
  2. If the above solution doesn’t work then the other possibility is your app/provider doesn’t follow the standard OAuth 2.0/ OpenID Connect protocol. In this case, get in touch with hubspotsupport@xecurify.com with your app/provider request/response format documentation and technician will get back to you with a solution.

I am getting the error message "Invalid response received"

To fix this issue, please configure the correct Token and User info endpoint in the HubSpot SSO application endpoint table. You can confirm the correct format of the endponit from HERE.
