MyTNT Missing Pending Shipment Menu item fixed
Pending Shipment Menu Item Missing from MyTNT web application
For some users the Pending Shipment Menu item was found to be missing when the logged into the MyTNT website. This was found to be a cross browser issue, also using another login credentials or clearing cookies and cache didn't clear the issue. It was not user rights related in the MyTNT application either.
This was found to be linked to specific users in a particular Active Directory group policy group applied to the users. This policy was blocking internet access, except for certain domains. This policy was the immediate clue as to what might be happening.
If you look in the image below, pending shipments does not exist in Domain User A web browser, but does for Domain User B. Also note the hamburger menu is added on B too.
After investigating in the developer tools of the internet browser to see what page objects were failing to load, one set of requests became prime suspect -requests to https://cdn.optimizely.com/js/5435521705.js
Blocking this domain (optimizely) on a machine that was not affected, caused the pending shipments menu option to vanish after clearing caches on the previously working machine -aha!
Thus group policy was adjusted to allow this content distribution network, and all was well again.
