I'm having issues with setting up a web request control on my Nintex form. I have set up a Secure Store Application to use as we want to use Windows Authentication on the control. Every time I test it I get the error message "Please enter the user name with correct format domain/password name". No matter what I've tired I cant get anything in the Test Results. When on Anonymous I actually get something. I have looked at the information pertaining to the web request control but it only gives an example of if your doing it anonymous so that was of no help. If anyone has come across this or has information it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for the help.
Hi Kevin, you are trying to add drop down control from webservice ? And why then you need secure store application ? Because as i understand secure store application is for for example letting group of people or all people from sharepoint to reach external system like SQL table with specific sql user rights.
Basically I'm using the web request to pull a particular piece of data from a list in our environment so can do calculations off it. but i dont what it to be populated into a drop down or radio buttons like list lookup does. Hence the Web Request controls. The data needs to have a secure way to be processed though at same time. Hence why using secure store unless there is a better way to do this I'm all ears. I understand using it with SQL and external systems but unlike Infopath where i can set up connection strings to then pull the data i needed out of other list Nintex doesn't have that. Any suggestion on a better way to do this would be greatful.
So basically the set up is,
1) User selects a item from drop down or radio button
2) Base on item it goes gets the rate
3) Rate goes into a few other calculations so calculations can be done
the Secure Store doesn't do any of the querying, it just encrypts the permissions for the user to be able to access the area.
Nintex itself asks for the Secure Store so that it can even do the querying when you do your Authentication type as Windows or Basic Authentication.
But this is a workflow action called web request ? Not the form control ? If it is Workflow action try using other webservice method which I usually use with SharePoint .asmx services. You will just need to input endpoint url of service and domain\username password.
Or i understand something wrong ?
This is a Form control in Nintex Enterprise version called Web Request. This and SQL Request are only available in the enterprise version of Nintex Forms. i use the .asmx service in the service url, then the Secure Store is basically doing the endpoint of domain\username password to do all the querying and pull out the xpath display of rate. but for some reason in nintex when i do it shows gives me the provide the information as domain\password name as i showed in the message it is given me. That is why trying to see if anyone has came across this, knows a solutions or work around for it. If not will have to go the route of just doing java script behind which my client really doesn't want.
