What does "Please log in to access this resource" mean?

Problem

When uploading a document for submission, an error message stating, "Please log in to access this resource" appears.

Cause

This error message is appearing because you've been signed out of Bonfire and this is preventing the file from uploading. This may occur if you've remained on the submission page for 4 hours, as that is the maximum amount of time a login session lasts for without any activity occurring.

Solution

To resolve this issue and continue with your submission in Bonfire, you can either refresh the page or click the Logout button located in the top right corner of your browser window.

A blue LOG IN / REGISTER button should then appear in its place. Please click this to log in again.

Once you have logged in you can get back to your work in progress submission by clicking the Submissions button in the top black bar, then Actions -> View next to the correct opportunity.

From there you will be able to continue your submission and shouldn't receive an error message when uploading your document to Bonfire.
