Invalid credentials

Hi everyone,


This thing is driving me crazy !


We have a web server with APFW (v18.2), the last official web api and 3 ACT databases. Every database is accessible through /APFW but none through /Act.Web.API.


After entering username, password and database name for the Web API, an popup keeps showing and asking for extra authentication. My guess : our IIS needs extra config for the Web API.


Am I wrong ?

Re: Invalid credentials

You need to disable basic authentication in IIS. The act.web.api runs as a web application under the Default Web Site, Click that folder in IIS and click on the Authentication Icon. You will want to disable basic authentication.
