Product: TIBCO Spotfire®
Data function in TIBCO Spotfire fails to execute with "Timed out connecting to http://servername:port/ServiceName/api/v8/administration/ExtendedServerInfo after 300000 ms while downloading manifest" error
In the TIBCO Spotfire installed client or the TIBCO Spotfire Web Player, opening a report with a data function that uses an open-source R script might throw an error like:
Error "Timed out connecting to http://servername:port/ServiceName/api/v8/administration/ExtendedServerInfo after 300000 ms while downloading manifest"
Additionally, the specified URL for the TIBCO Spotfire Statistics Services (TSSS) instance the script was sent to will also not be accessible from a web browser. Like:
Installing a more recent version of the rJava package may fix this issue, but a more robust solution is to use the tested open-source R version that is specified in the system requirements for the particular TSSS release being used. Doc: Configuring an open-source R engine
