  • It sounds like your URL is being double-encoded. Have you deployed any post-SP1 update to SharePoint 2013 (April 2014 CU or MS14-022 or higher)? September 2014 CU clears the double encoding issue.

  • Hi ,

    As another workaround you can add the following custom action link to use closeConnection.aspx?loginasanotheruser=true for your web application, this custom link could be used to login as another user, but it will redirect user to site home page, you can try.

  • Hi,

    Its happening few times randomly.Some time sing in as different users works fine.

    Some times %25 appears in the url before redirecting to the same page as different user after, selecting sign in as different user option.Then error comes up.


    Thanks & Regards, Krishna

  • Hi Krishna,

    Please install September 2014 CU for SharePoint as Shelley suggested to see what happens.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Krishna,

    If you have installed June 2016 CU for SharePoint 2013, you do not need to install September 2014 CU.

    Did you still meet the issue after applying June 2016 CU?

    Best regards,

    Victoria
