Foreman 1.23-develop Blank White Screen after Login

Problem: Instead of getting the main dashboard view, I get a blank screen.

Expected outcome: Default dashboard view should have been seen after login

Foreman and Proxy versions:



Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:

Foreman: 1.23-develop
Smart-Proxy: not used (installed via Puppet Forge modules - theforeman/puppet and theforeman/foreman)

Other relevant data:
[e.g. logs from Foreman and/or the Proxy, modified templates, commands issued, etc]
(for logs, surround with three back-ticks to get proper formatting, e.g.)


I had a prior install working with CentOS 7, Puppet 6 and Foreman 1.23-develop using the following servers:

  • Puppet CA
  • Puppet Catalog
  • PuppetDB DB Server (Postgresql)
  • PuppetDB App Server
  • Foreman DB Server (MariaDB)
  • Foreman App Server

I have redeployed these servers trying to get a redundant PuppetCA setup (set that aside for now) and have redundant Puppet Catalog server up behind a load balancer. I was able to deploy the PuppetDB and Foreman db/application servers using the load balancer in front of the Puppet Catalog servers.

My prior working solution was also on CentOS 7 and Puppet 6.x … I don’t know what specific RPM updates may have come out in the last week that could have an impact.

When I reload the page in the web browser (using both Chrome and Firefox – on a Mac OS X system), I get the following entries in /var/log/foreman/production.log:

I do not appear to be having issues with SElinux. I get the same results after ‘setenforce 0’ or after ‘setenforce 1’

Hi, could you take a look at the browser console (usually Ctrl+Shift+I, console tab)?

Nightly is currently broken due, AFAIK due to a patternfly update that hasn’t been packaged. Working on it.

Ok, will wait for an update in the nightly build

Is it still broken? Or is my local mirror of not current? I just tried rebuilding my Foreman application server and still got a blank white page after the login screen.


if you had foreman tasks installed, it is likely you hit, which was merged earlier
today, so hopefully next nightly will be better :slight_smile:

thanks for testing our nighties… :slight_smile:

nightlies have actually been broken for over a week now due to Bug #26830: Redux-form 8 is incompatible with react-redux 5 - Foreman which will hopefully be fixed soon.

Foreman nightlies should now be working. There is a known issue is katello nightlies that is being worked on.

Forgot to send an update last week – the new nightly RPMs do work for me now.
