Hi al

I have created a ws in pb 2017 and its looks great - no error .

calling one of its functions return the message : http 401 - un Authorized . I spoke with the system admin and he told me that he sees my call but the call gets with no user name and password so that's why  the error message i gets .


I tried the SetProxyServer() and sets the user name and password before calling the function but still does not work.

he told me to see how powerbuilder handles Delegation .

i googled it but i did not find nothig useful

Any idea ? please help

  1. using the SoapConnection class:
    conn = CREATE SoapConnection
    conn.SetBasicAuthentication('', "username", "password")  // usr+pwd known to the web server
  2. using a WS datawindow:
    lws_connection = CREATE wsconnection
    lws_connection.authenticationmode = "basic"
    lws_connection.username = "username"  // usr+pwd known to the web server
    lws_connection.password = "password"

Try to use function SetBasicAuthentication or SetOptions if the server requires an authenification for the connection.

Use SetProxyServer only if you have a proxy.
