    The username / password for accessing the Adobe web service is not configured properly.

    Refer to the Configuration guide pp. 12-15.

      Hi Subhash,

      Please check the security provider in Visual Admin.Make sure you use the basic authentication .

      User: ADSUser and correctly typed password.

      To set up Basic Authentication in a Java environment:

      1. Log on to the Visual Administrator.

      2. On the Cluster tab, choose Server <x> &#8594; Services &#8594; Web Services Security.

      3. Choose Web Service Clients → > tcwdpdfobject &#8594;*ConfigPort_Document.

      4. Check that the url mentioned there is correct (Thats the location where ADS is running as a web service). If not, please modify the URL (switch to Custom) to point it to the right location. You are required to change only the host and port in the URL. You can test the URL on your browser to be 100% sure.

      5. From the Authentication list, select BASIC.

      6. In the User and Password boxes, enter as Username ADSUser and a Password (consult your ADS administrator has got the same).

      7. Choose Save.

      8. The authentication data must be activated. For doing this navigate to Services &#8594; Deploy.

      9. Choose the button Application.

      10. Choose in the tree.

      11. Choose Stop Application.

      12. For restarting the application choose Start Application.

      13. Test your application

      Hope this helps.
