KB-43281: Retrieving A Secret Throws the Error "Bad HTTP Request with status 500"

Privileged Access Service ,  

27 October,20 at 02:36 PM

Problem:
  
When retrieving a secret, the error popups, "Bad HTTP request with status 500."  Showing the error details gives this information:
  
User-added image
  

Cause:
  
This error appears when the secret's policy setting, Default Secret Challenge Profile, is set to "-Not Allowed".  The default policy can be seen by browsing to:
  
Resources -> Secrets -> <secret> -> Policy
  
User-added image
  
  
Resolution:
  
Modify the secret's policy such that the chosen profile allows the secret to be downloaded and/or viewed by the user.
