Issue

When trying to create a new project in Transformation Designer the following error appears:

The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'. The authentication header received from the server was 'NTLM,Negotiate'.

Known Causes

There are 2 known causes of this error:

1. The BasicHttpStreamingBinding_Service security bindings are different between web.config and Agility.Server.StreamingService.exe.config

2. The account specified in IIS > TotalAgility site > Authentication > Anonymous Authentication > Edit does not have access to the Agility.Server.Web folder

Resolution

To resolve the above causes please do the following:

1. Ensure the security bindings are the same across both configs, e.g.

<security mode="Transport">

<transport clientCredentialType="None" />

</security>

2. Make sure this account has access to the Agility.Server.Web folder (or the parent Total Agility folder)

Note: By default the Anonymous user account is set to the IUSR account. If for any reason this has changed then please ensure the new account has the necessary permissions
