Scheduled reports fonts changed to other language, although customer did not change the font to non-English language

To duplicate this:

  • In Reporter login page's bottom right corner you can see the language option. Select "English (US)" option and login as "user_admin".
  • TIP: This problem will occur whenever "user_admin" logs in using non-English Locale.

 To see the changes that have just been made, see preferences.cfg by opening this file:  From reporter folder path:  \Blue Coat Reporter 9\settings\preferences.cfg, we should see use_admin language locale as below:

preferences = { 

  miscellaneous = { 

    language = "english" 

    charset = "UTF-8" 

  } # miscellaneous


Ensure all scheduled reports are logged under the same user, such as admin,  and always use this user to log in using english locale.

Root cause: “user_admin” has to login with English locale. Once “user_admin” login with English locale, the language will become “en-us” in user_info\user_admin.cfg. Then automatically all the reports scheduled by admin user will pick up the English fonts.
