When opening Transformation Designer, could appear below error message: 'http://localhost/TotalAgility/Services/Sdk/CaptureProjectService.svc (http://localhost/TotalAgility/Servic...ectService.svc)' could not be activated

How can we solve it?

  1. Try in the browser:
    http://localhost/TotalAgility/Services/Sdk/CaptureProjectService.svc (http://localhost/TotalAgility/Services/Sdk/CaptureProjectService.svc)
    The authentication schemes configured on the host ('IntegratedWindowsAuthentication') do not allow those configured on the binding 'BasicHttpBinding' ('Anonymous'). Please ensure that the SecurityMode is set to Transport or TransportCredentialOnly. Additionally, this may be resolved by changing the authentication schemes for this application through the IIS management tool, through the ServiceHost.Authentication.AuthenticationSchemes property, in the application configuration file at the <serviceAuthenticationManager> element, by updating the ClientCredentialType property on the binding, or by adjusting the AuthenticationScheme property on the HttpTransportBindingElement.
  2. Check the authentication mode enabled in totalAgility application
    Enable the anonymous authentication too
  3. Try again the service: http://localhost/TotalAgility/Services/Sdk/CaptureProjectService.svc (http://localhost/TotalAgility/Services/Sdk/CaptureProjectService.svc)


  • Only the designer and workspace use windows authentication. This is configurable.
  • The services may need to use anonymous if WEB and APP sever are on different domains.
