Why is my PME and SBO Connection via EWS not authenticating credentials?


30 September 2021

By default PME 2020 is enabled with HTTPS, hence it is necessary to Configure the PME EWS server for HTTPS.

To configure the EWS server for HTTPS client connections:

  1. On the PME server, open the web.config file for editing, for example in Notepad. You can find this file in ...\Power Monitoring Expert\applications\EWS
  2. Search for the <binding name="DataExchange_BP11Binding"> element in the file. Find the <httpTransport ... /> child element and change it to <httpsTransport... />
  3. Search for the <behavior name="DataExchange_BP11Behavior"> element in the file. Find the <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" /> child element and add the httpsGetEnabled="true" attribute. After the change the element should look like this: <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" httpsGetEnabled="true"/>
  4. Save the web.config file. Close the file.
  5. Restart Internet Information Services (IIS) on this computer

This is covered in the PME 2020 System Guide.
