Summary:Claims authentication relies on cookies which are not supported by Nintex Workflow. In this case you need to ensure that your farm uses machine-based or IP-based sessions rather than cookies for internal traffic
Product:All Workflow Products
Symptom:Relates to Authentication Errors with Web Services Authentication Errors with Web Services
Cause:Incorrectly set Internal Traffic Settings
|We recommend testing the web service first in a “Web request” action in Nintex Workflow. |
Make sure you are using the X-FORMS_BASED_AUTH_ACCEPTED header with the Web Request action. This is required if you have a Claims Authorization environment.
Please try the using the X-FORMS_BASED_AUTH_ACCEPTED header with the “Web Request” action
The web request action can use a header to tell it to not use ADFS. Header X-FORMS_BASED_AUTH_ACCEPTED set value to f will force Windows Authentication.
Depending on your environment please refer to this link for more detailed information about the header: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/hh124553(v=office.14).aspx

Extend the web application to have a separate URL that uses Windows or regular forms-based authorization (refer to our tutorial here: https://community.nintex.com/docs/DOC-1216). This uses an Alternate Access Mapping (AAM) to enable a completely different URL for the web application that has separate authentication.
A Web Service can then be called on that URL that uses different authentication:
