EPiServer Connect for SharePoint 2.2 - Configuration



I'm having problems getting my SharePoint connector to talk to EPiServer. I have installed the solution into SharePoint and am attempting to configure the web parts.

My web.config entry for web service authorization is as follows:

 <allow users="WebService" />


WebService is a valid user in EPiServer and I have added it to the "Allow the user to act as a web service user" setting in the Permissions for Functions setting.

I have enabled Basic Authentication.

When I try to connect from SharePoint using this user I get the following error:

Web service error occured. SoapException message: Server was unable to process request. ---> The user does not have the 'Permission.WebServiceAccess' access right to access web services, for user

Does anyone have any idea what's going on? It looks like I have everything configured correctly.

My issue seems to have been caused by my user not being a Windows user, I had created it as a SQL user.

When I created the user on the operating system everything seemed to work ok.

Sql users also can be used.

You can find updated doc on how uathentication should be configured for SQL users.
