EcoStruxure Web Services(EWS) and users managed by Active Directory(Windows user)

EcoStruxure Web Services(EWS) and users managed by Active Directory(Windows user)

Issue

Is it currently supported in EcoStruxure Building Operation to make EWS requests with users managed by Active Directory (Windows user)?

Product Line

EcoStruxure Building Operation

Environment

  • Building Operation Enterprise Server
  • Building Operation Automation Server

Cause

The EcoStruxure Building Operation software provides two methods to log on to the system, as a Windows user or as an EcoStruxure Building Operation user.

Windows User
A Windows user account is mapped to a Windows Active Directory user account group.

Log On as an EcoStruxure Building Operation User
When logging on as an EcoStruxure Building Operation user, you authenticate yourself with an EcoStruxure Building Operation account user name and password

Resolution

EWS only supports login to SBO domains (with Challenge Response, RFC7616) and NOT Windows domains added into SBO.
It is not possible for an EWS request to authenticate using a Windows user only an EcoStruxure Building Operation user.
