Playbook connectivity issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I'm unable to connect to the PWA instance via Playbook. The instance is on the same machine from where I'm running Playbook. I'm using Claim base authentication, that could be causing problem but I don't know how am I suppose to connect to it, though I've tried several ways to connect, for example windows authentication and with form like i:0#.w|domain\administrator, domain\administrator etc. 

    Thanks

     


    Thanks, Kashif

  • Playbook doesn't works in Claims mode, you have to take the site back to NTLM & then perform the tasks that you want & again switch it back to claims, thats how we have been handling some cases

  • Thanks for the reply, but tried that as well. I can even connect with MSP but not with Playbook.

  • Hi Kashif,

    Playbooks doesn't work under claim based authentication. You will need to use NTLM to run Playbooks. An alternative may be to check out a third party product called fluent pro (http://www.fluentpro.com/) I am not sure if their solution works with claims based authentication, what I do know is that their solution is much more stable than Playbooks, which is quite unreliable.

    Hope this helps
