Web Service calls stop after upgrading to Version 11.02.05 or later

If you configured eFORMz to receive web service calls, you might see an entry similar to this in the web server log after migrating to eFORMz Version 11.02.05 or later:

(10/22/18 7:45:54 AM) [0000000051:eFORMz-ServletHandler.handle.51]  
   com.minisoft.AppServer.Session::doPost:227 Director Service
*  Error connecting to the Director.
*  Login failed: no user name

In versions before 11.02.05, the user and password attributes defaulted to minisoft and password if they were not included in a web service call to eFORMz. These attributes must now be included.

The following example shows the previous format of the ServiceConfiguration element:

<ServiceConfiguration ServiceType="director" NameTemplate="data_.xml" 
ConfigurationName="Local.cfg" QueueName="Input" ProcessData="true" Sync="true" 
UseParmsAsData="false">

The new ServiceConfiguration element requires the User and Password attributes, as shown in the following example:

<ServiceConfiguration ServiceType="director" NameTemplate="data_.xml" 
ConfigurationName="Local.cfg" QueueName="Input" ProcessData="true" Sync="true" 
UseParmsAsData="false" User="minisoft" Password="password">

Use a non-default user and password values for better security.
