If the data and metadata are being stored in the drafts node, then the auto save functionality is configured correctly. You're refreshing the adaptive form window that has the adaptive form url, but this url is only for the form and does not contain any information about how to prefill the form. It wont open a form with the saved values. To open a saved form (i.e. draft), normal refresh won't work. You will have to open the draft from the location where the drafts/submissions on your system are stored. By default, the location for drafts/submissions is - http://<Server Name>:<Port No>/content/geometrixx-gov/en/applications/myforms.html .
