Web Services API: Http 401 error

#1

Issue
When trying to call a WorkflowGen Web Service (/wfgen/ws/ProcessesRuntime.asmx) you receive a Http 401 error code.

Solution
the “/wfgen/ws/” folder must be secured by using Http Basic authentication (secured with SSL if possible).
Windows integrated authentication is not supported.
You can also secure the /wfgen/ws folder with a custom http module which has to support application to application authentication (e.g: a form based authentication is not compatible because the web service is called by an another application).
