Enabling REST API access on new 2018 Orchestrator installation


#1

I have just installed the 2018.1 Orchestrator Server on a VM in our on-premises environment using the UiPathPlaform.msi and I am having problems connecting to the /api/account/authenticate REST API.

Are there additional steps to perform after the installation to enable this?

Cheers

#2

Ok so the problem seems to be when I try to use an Active Directory account to authenticate against the REST API I get the error

Invoke-RestMethod : {“message”:“An error has occurred.”,“errorCode”:0,“resourceIds”:null}

If I use an orchestrator account all works fine.

Do I need to specify the AD account in a certain format in the username field or are only orchestrator accounts supported?

Cheers

David
