This usually happens when the app cannot connect to the online service.
Please check your firewall, and make sure that CatLight.exe and LocalWeb.exe processes are allowed to connect to the Internet.
If you use a proxy server that requires manual configuration, you can go to Edit menu/Settings/Proxy and provide connection details.
For more information, you can check the application logs at %AppData%\CatLight\Logs\log.txt
Here is a sample error message, indicating a connection problem:
- When giving Catlight it's own desktop to use in full screen dashboard view, the dashboard will move to it's own space after clicking on a toolbar notification.
- Logging back into Macbook Pro from sleep mode, the full screen dashboard & Catlight in general freezes; It requires activity monitor manual forced exit to correct. I've tested just stretching the Catlight window til almost to full screen & no freezing.
Not difference between disabled build def's with last build broken, and active build def's with last build broken
In the dashboard, there are no difference between disabled build def's with last build broken, and active build def's with last build broken, which Means, we cannot distinguish between the failed builds to work on, and which to not work on.
We have about 10 out of 50 build definitions that are disabled due to old legacy-issues, and which we do not want to remove, because of future need to activate them.
We had a developer that broke a number of builds and kept trying (without investigating). Because they shouldn't have even created the CI builds directly, I removed them in the VSTS build page but now Catlight still shows them all as broken and attempts to refresh are not removing them. Seems Catlight should remove build status for builds that no longer exist.
I am trying to connect for on-premise TFS, and alwais get the same error:
"Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: <. Path '', line 0, position 0."
and my Project Collection Url, user and password (domain\user) are correct.
At the moment, CatLight cannot connect to teamcity if only NTLM is used.
GitExtensions is having the same Issue currently.
To workaround this issue it's possible to get an authentication cookie when ntlmlogin.html page is browsed.
This authentication cookie can than be passed for further rest calls.
a powsershell sample can be found in the answer from mclayton on http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11020066/log-onto-teamcity-server-using-rest-api-without-passing-credentials-in-the-url
Getting the "Something Broke Down"error when trying to add a TFS connection.

If TFS Query name contains + and I try to click this query in Catlight dashboard - link is broken. See my case example:
- Query name: Bugs for SIT 13 (Prio+)
- Link generated by CatLight: <TFS root path>/_workitems?path=My%20Queries/Bugs%20for%20SIT%2013%20(Prio+)&_a=query (TF401243: The query My Queries/Bugs for SIT 13 (Prio ) does not exist, or you do not have permission to read it.)
- Correct expected link: <TFS root path>/_workitems?path=My%20Queries/Bugs%20for%20SIT%2013%20(Prio%2B)&_a=query
MacOS "installer" is named "setup.zip" which is quite an unfortunate filename as it doesn't say anything useful: neither about the application nor about the platform.
The standard way to deploy MacOS applications are is via "dmg" files so a filename named "catlight.dmg" would probably be much better but even a catlight.zip could be seend a ok.
When setting up the connection setting for Jenkins in CatLight v2.1.4 I am getting a "Error: SSL connect error"
The Jenkins server is hosted in AWS with a Amazon issues SSL Cert thats valid.
Any recommendations on how to resolve this?
I have >30 Github projects enabled in Travis-CI, but only 12/13 of them are listed when choosing the "settings" for Travis in CatLight. It seems that only some of the available projects are listed. It seems also to change and newly builded are somewhen later available as "Unselected" project ...
For Appveyor all available are listed correctly.

We use Jenkins folders to represent branch builds of our source. Inside each branch, there can be multiple produts and each product can have several jenkins jobs. In order to have a single page where we can list all the builds for a particular product, we use Jenkins Views - which are configured using a regex to dynamically pickup new jobs for new branches.
Cat light however is puking with "An item with the same key has already been added " when we use the URL of the View page - presumably because it is getting confused due to
Hi, we have multiple jenkins server running jobs with the same name.
Server01 has jobs JobA, JobB and JobC
Server02 has jobs JobA, JobB and JobC
For the setup of catlight we first configured Server01, then Server02. Both to monitor those jobs.
Now when clicking on a job for Server02, we will be redirected to the jenkins build page of Server01.
When adding a third server, Server03, with the same jobs, these will also redirect to Server01.
CatLight automatically checks for updates from time to time. When network connection is absent, or application cannot connect to online service, update check fails. Error message should be logged in this situation. There is a bug in logging code for this rare type of messages that starts a recursive logging cycle. After that, application consumes up to 1.2 Gb memory and then terminates.
This problem should be fixed in v2.0 that is scheduled to be available in several weeks.
Meanwhile, you can just restart the application after that happens.
Today CatLight prompted me to re-init my TFS connection which is for a Visual Studio Online account. When I click Save on the TFS connection settings screen, it opens a page in my browser to authorize CatLight. When I click Accept, I get this message (base URL obfuscated on purpose):
There was a problem accessing your account: Response status code does not indicate success: 302 (Found).
Please make sure that:
- Collection url is correct and accessible: https://xxxxxxx.visualstudio.com:443/defaultcollection
- User that is logged in this browser have access to https://xxxxxxx.visualstudio.com:443/defaultcollection
I am running a machine with Windows 8 and I was not able to successfully install Catlight.
Is Catlight compatible with Windows 8 or do I have to have Windows 10 in order to download it?
