RC2008.3 SP5 HTTP Adapter to call web service - Authorization error

RC2008.3 SP5 HTTP Adapter to call web service - Authorization error

I've designed a  service calliing  an external task. This task is an  agent for an HTTP Adapter. I'm trying to call a web service internal to  the company. This web service requires passing a userid and password. I  can call this webservice successfully using SOAPUI.

i've created a  XSL transformation to add the soap envelope and body. I tried adding a  AuthenticationInfo tag in the soap header to pass the username and  password per the manual. However I keep getting failure due to  authenication. I'm doing a call to a really simple test web service  passing one field.

Can anyone help?Is there some property file i  need to have set in newscale to get basic authentication to work? Should  i be passing this authentication information thru the HTTP Header  instead?

Here's the sample external message coming out of service link:(with username/password as xxx's)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xdt="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-datatypes" xmlns:fn="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-functions" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format"   xmlns:urn="urn:sap-com:document:sap:soap:functions:mc-style"><soapenv:Header><AuthenticationInfo><userName>xxx</userName><password>xxx</password></AuthenticationInfo></soapenv:Header><soapenv:Body><urn:ZTestFm><In>1</In></urn:ZTestFm></soapenv:Body></soapenv:Envelope>

Hi Patti,

We had the exact same issue with trying to get integration working into SAP, the HTTP Adapter provided out of the box doesn't seem to cater for basic authentication. 

We also tried passing the authentication in the SOAP header with no success.

We contacted newScale who provided us with another adapter called HTTP IWA adapter that catered for authentication. With this adapter you can provide the authentication in the agent's properties. This solved our issue, it seems that the

thanks! We got the adapter, but haven't installed it yet. Did you have to reinstall your system to incorporate the new adapter?

Hi Patti,

All you need to do is perform an upgrade process on your nS installation, you can leave the default settings and then then when you get the long options screen (there are 28 options), specify the path the to the adapter archive and proceed as normal.

So you don't have to reinstall the system but it is pretty much the same process anyway.
