After a successful install of Activity Feeds in an On-Premise, everything seemed to work fine. Except, browsing to the Workplace > What’s New keeps throwing the following error:


After a little bit of digging around, I’ve realized that it expects you to access the CRM instance by the properly configured URL. Hopping across from one network to another I was just using the IP address of the CRM server because I was too lazy to modify the network settings or the host file.

Quickly adding a line in the host file, mapping the IP with the proper target destination made this go away.

Lesson learned: don’t cut corners, the solution might not know how to handle your shortcuts!
