If you are experiencing the symptoms above then your personal environment has been automatically disabled. This happened because one of your applications has exceeded the allowed resource usage.

This protection mechanism disables Personal Environments if any of following occurs:

  1. Your application has at some point reached the allowed memory limit for your personal environment;
  2. You have created an application that was using too much CPU for a long time;
  3. You have created a pattern (an infinite loop or wrong code pattern in an integration) that is causing your environment to crash repeatedly;
  4. You have too many complex applications running.


If you are seeing this for the first time, you may have recently changed your application to cause the problem.
If so, you should go to ServiceCenter and rollback any recent changes (or disable the application you were working on altogether)!

To recover your personal environment, you will need to contact Support. We will help you recover your personal environment and in solving the problem that caused this failure.


Applies to Personal Environments, any version.
