4.1 SP2 - 401 on Users.svc Web Service Call

Hey everyone!

I'm doing some work with the Sitefinity web services and I've hit a small snag...

Yesterday, I upgraded to SP2. After a successful upgrade, I was unable to connect to the Authenticate service. Instead of the status code I was given before, I'm now greeted by a 401 and the following message:

    "Message": "Authentication failed.",
    "StackTrace": null,
    "ExceptionType": "System.InvalidOperationException"

I had everything functioning before the upgrade so I'm confident that the code worked on SP1. Did something change or am I just doin' it wrong? :)

Additional notes:
I've re-checked the configuration against the Sitefinity Installation guide, it seems good.
I'm able to hit the services via browser (after I provide login credentials of course)
The site itself seems to work as expected. I'm able to log in and click around in the admin.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Tim,

Can you show the code that you use for authentication? Form where you call it and how?

Ivan,

I'm doing this in Java, here's the applicable code:

 
String jsonData = String.format("\"MembershipProvider\":\"%s\",\"UserName\":\"%s\",\"Password\":\"%s\",\"Persistent\":%s", membershipProvider, userName, password, rememberMe);
HttpPost request = new HttpPost(authPath);
HttpClient client = new DefaultHttpClient();
HttpResponse httpResponse;
 
StringEntity se;
try
    se = new StringEntity(jsonData);
    request.setEntity(se);
catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e1)
    e1.printStackTrace();
 
request.addHeader("Content-Type", "application/json");
 
try
    httpResponse = client.execute(request);
 
...

I appreciate it!

I'm still looking for a solution. Did that help to shed some light on any issues that I'm not seeing?

Looking around on the search engines, I'm seeing people adding things to the web.config. This seems like is a semi-related post from the Telerik forums. (The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized)

I compared the two web.config files after the upgrade and found no apparent changes. Any necessary inclusions to that file would have been done in the upgrade process from SP1 to SP2, yes?

Thanks!

Hi Ivan

Any solution to this?

I'm using the code from this post

www.sitefinity.com/.../sitefinity-4-0-rc-integration-with-silverlight-existing-project.aspx

so it should work OK, but I get a 401 on the line 
using (var response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse())

I'm using an AspNetSqlMembershipProvider, not default.

Thanks

Ian
