We are having an issue with a Web Service job. We can reach the WSDL via web browser after authentication but the job failed with SUBERROR;

Error submitting request: WSDLException: faultCode=COMMUNICATION_ERROR: Unable to retrieve document at 'https://workstation:8443/axis2/services/EspDSeriesService?wsdl': The resource retrieval request has failed: HTTP/1.1 401


The 401 code indicates the resource retrieval request failed due to authorization issue. The most common cause is invalid client authentication.


Release : 12.0

Component : CA Workload Automation Agent for Web Services


Provide the client authentication user in the Connection Information page in the Web Service Doc/Literal job definition;

- Open the job definition or reset definition in Desktop Client

- Click Connection Information in the left pane
