Cause

The issue is caused because Archer now uses the "PUT" method to the Archer RESTful Services API for saving changes on the user profile page and this method may have been previously configured to be blocked in IIS.

ResolutionThere are several places where the "PUT" method may be blocked.

Default Web Site location:
  • IIS Manager -> Sites -> Default Web Site -> Request Filtering -> HTTP Verbs -> If the "Put" verb is listed, remove it from the list.

Archer Site Location:
  • IIS Manager -> Sites -> Default Web Site -> RSAArcher -> HTTP Verbs -> If the "Put" verb is listed, remove it from the list.

3rd Party Module installed into IIS and used for Single Sign On, Authentication, or Security Controls.
  • See the documentation of 3rd party module to allow the "PUT" verb to the Archer site or disable the module (IIS Manager -> Modules).

IMPORTANT: While Archer has security layers to verify the "PUT" method is used safely on the Archer site, other sites on the same web server may not have such security, and may still require having the "PUT" method blocked for security reasons.
