Auth Service DSS Values and Indirect References
We are using SAML SSO and in our Authentication Service in our dev environment are linking all of the endpoints and such with DSS Settings. We do this by means of global resource settings. We have a node level page called D_EnvSettings which has a source of a data transform which pulls the DSS values and assigns them to properties on the data page. We reference the values in the Auth service by the notation "=D_EnvSettings.SAMLAuth2ARS"
This works completely fine in our DEV environment, but when we moved it over to our TESTING environment we have run into an issue where it seems the authentication service can't see the data page. All of the other rules which reference the data page for D_EnvSettings seem to be working, but our Auth service isn't working.
In the browser we get an error saying something along the lines of "Can't find D_EnvSettings by indirect reference" when trying to hit the SSO endpoint (trigger the authentication service). We're completely unsure of why this would happen in one environment but not in the other, and more so, why other rules can access it just fine but the auth service can't. If we remove the DSS reference to the data page, and just hardcode the information it seems to work just fine.
We've tried many things but can't figure it out. Any help is much appreciated!
