So I’ve got access to several cloudflare accounts. I cannot merge these accounts because they belong to several different companies (we provide technical support for them). And as far as I can tell, Cloudflare does not offer a “Partner” dashboard portal where I can log in and manage all these accounts (similar to what Office 365 does for Microsoft Partners). I am aware that cloudflare does have a partner system, but it only integrates into cPanel/Plesk etc or programmatically - a feature which we do not use at this time, but will visit at some stage in the future. But I need a solution now, hence the post.
Anyway, I access the cloudflare dashbboard for each of these maybe once every month or so depending on whether or not changes are required. I use mainly Firefox or Chrome. Every time I try to log in, I get an error that is some variation of
“User session has expired. Please refresh the page”. Of course, refreshing the page just does nothing, and brings me back to the logon page.
I have tried incognito mode (and private mode) in firefox to no avail.
If I keep trying, eventually I will be able to log in (usually on the 2nd or 4th attempt). The surefire way to make it work is to try it from a different computer. But this is an enormous hassle because I have a password manager which auto-fills my logon e-mail and password, so if I have to do it from another machine I have to manually copy & paste which is an order of magnitude more time consuming than just having it auto fill. I have a feeling the issue is related to cookies or state data being in my browser somehow. But this doesn’t explain why it doesn’t even work in incognito/private mode without any add-ons/extensions. It may also be worth noting that our network is IPv6 enabled so I use IPv6 to access the cloudflare dashboard.
Anyone have any idea how this can be fixed or worked around?
