Issue:

While creating REST endpoint to integrate CDD with Automic Release Automation (ARA) we are getting error

Fail to ping or connect the server due to status code 401: Status test: Unauthorized: Error message: There is an error in response: 401 (Unauthorized). {"code":1002,"error":"Invalid Username or Password", "data":null}

 

Rest Endpoint configuration

  1. URL: ARA url example: http://IP:PORT/ara
  2. Username: ARA
  3. Password: <ARA user password>
Environment:
Continuous Delivery Director: 6.4
Cause:

The cause is that the username field during REST endpoint creation need exclusive ID's which is like a absolute to which application/client-id etc you want to integrate.

 

Resolution:

So to correct the above error the correct configuration will be below.

Rest Endpoint configuration

  1. URL: ARA url example: http://IP:PORT/ara
  2. Username: AUTOMIC/100/ARA/ARA
  3. Password: <ARA user password>
