When I try to post data to web service, I am getting the html code (login html code). Though I have authenticated and posted data, I am still getting the error.

Could you please tell us how should we authenticate the webservice exported in RA.

Please assist

    I'm also interested in this topic. I'd like to create web services that are are publicly accessible, but put them in wordpress on "login only" pages, this way I could simply use wordpress for login access, which would be amazing.

    Hi,

    exchange the /RA by /RAWS. /RA is only meant to be used by real people thus it is showing the login page whereas /RAWS allows you to log in with HTTP-Basic authentication.

    Hi Nils,

    thanks for your feedback. I did as you suggested and replaced "RA" by "RAWS" in the link, but now I get a 404 error:

    HTTP Status 404 - /RAWS/faces/restricted/embed.xhtml
    type Status report
    message /RAWS/faces/restricted/embed.xhtml
    description The requested resource (/RAWS/faces/restricted/embed.xhtml) is not available.
    JBoss Web/3.0.0-CR1

    Would you have an idea how this could be fixed?

    Hi,

    sorry I didn't read your post, just the first one. Your case is somehow different.
    You want to use the results of the Web service (e.g. a flash chart) in an iframe on your own page, right?
    But unfortunately this isn't possible at the moment without logging in to RapidAnalytics.

    Best,

    Hi Nils,

    thank you for clarifying.

    Yes, I created a wordpress page on my website which contains like 20 different flash charts (the page is meant to be something like a dashboard: Sales, Number of customers, profits etc...)


    When the page is first opened, all charts show only the login screen. I log into one and then reload the entire page, then all charts show up. However, I was hoping there'd be a way that the charts could be accessed publicly. If so, one could manage access control by using Wordpress or any other CMS.

    Anyway, I do thank you for clarifying. If I'm not the only one with this "issue", maybe this could be considered for future versions? Maybe a checkbox in RapidAnalytics "Make public"?

    But honestly, even with this little drawback, RapidMiner and RapidAnalytics are a Zillion times better than any other tool I've used so far!
