When opening the Source Properties, Target Properties, Mapping Table of this job, or testing the BFC datastore, the following errors are received.

  • System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Failed to invoke service ---> Cartesis.Framework.Business.Client.InvalidCredentialException: Invalid credential.
  • Failed to invoke service ---> Invalid credential.

BusinessObjects Enterprise XI Authentication(Web Service) is set as the external authentication for the BFC.
