Incoming messages not showing in chat

Hi. I tried with several versions, nothing seems to work. I can see messages and info in #rooms but not private messages in chat. Notification about messages stay and everything is just blank without any info. Please help.

  • Version of Rocket.Chat Server: 2.17.22
  • Operating System: Win 10 64x
  • Deployment Method:
  • Number of Running Instances:
  • DB Replicaset Oplog:
  • NodeJS Version:
  • MongoDB Version:
  • Proxy:
  • Firewalls involved:



Can you give you give us a bit of history about your server?

I just don’t recall ever seeing a version 2.17.22 ?? Do you mean the electron client?

You really need to tell us which version the actual server is, and I suggest you upgrade your client too.

Just experienced this same problem. Was a simple fix. The user account was not assigned any role. Added the user to the “user” role fixed the issue.
