JavaScript plugin error after upgrade to 2022.1

10 - Fireball

We upgraded Designer and Server from 2021.3 to 2022.1 on Tuesday. Ever since then, we are getting 

Error: JavaScript (7): Failed to receive initialization from JavaScript plugin, timeout "20000ms"
on any workflow using the JavaScript Tool.


Even the samples downloaded from throw the same error. I also tried reinstalling from that page as well, with no change.


The error happens on both Designer and Server. AMP or no AMP, makes no difference.


Is anyone else encountering this?

@blyons, as noted in the blog article you reference, the JavaScript tool was experimental. As such it was never officially supported. As you have encountered, apparently a recent change was introduced that broke the tool. I've archived the blog and added a note at the top. Apologies for the inconvenience.
