I want to send sms via ViewX. The institution has an agreement with an sms site. I need to send a command to this site. The site has an exe program. I need to command this program. I did a study with logic. But whatever I do, I get the "System call credentials are invalid (logon failed)" program error.
I am logging in the System Status under System Configuration on the server. But where am I making mistakes?
I am open to all kinds of ideas. Thank you...

Hey @abii , thank you for your question
I moved it to the Geo SCADA forum where the community of experts will be able to provide you the right support and solve your issue!
PS: don't hesitate to check the Knowledge base and use the search bar with keywords. there is a lot of content discussed everyday and your issue may have already been solved 😉
What do you have configured under the user settings for Username/Password in this entry?
ClearSCADA requires a valid username and password to logon to the server to allow System Calls to be made successfully.
Given the error message that you are seeing, I suspect that you have not entered a valid username/password combination for the ClearSCADA server to execute the System Call.
Also worth noting that with services like Twilio its pretty straightforward to write a driver to interface with it using JSON or some libraries, I think Steve posted some code on his gitlab page.
Whilst calling an exe may work, a better integration will give you feedback such messages sent, read and if they reply.
An alternative approach:
One thing I have done in the past with email distributions, was to put peoples phone numbers in as an email address. It may be different if you are outside of the United States, but here it is possible to put the email@example.com and send an email that will be converted to text message by the carrier. The worst part about doing it this way that I can remember is you must know the cellular carrier, and you are limited to either 60 or 120 characters.
IE 10 digit cellphone number @ something.com or .net :
firstname.lastname@example.org for Verizon Wireless
email@example.com for AT&T
firstname.lastname@example.org. for TMobile.
