When using client certificates additional steps must be taken due to a limitation in the New-WebServiceProxy cmdlet which does not support client certificates.

  • Open the XIA Configuration Server web service that you are trying to access - for example

  • Right click the service description link, and click save link as

  • Save the WSDL document to a location accessible to the script - for example "C:\WebService\XiaConfiguration.wsdl"

  • Use the following in a PowerShell script or the PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE), replacing the highlighted text with appropriate values

    $xia = New-WebServiceProxy "file://C:\WebService\filename.wsdl"
    $certificate = Get-ChildItem Cert:\CurrentUser\My\{THUMBPRINT}
    $xia.UseDefaultCredentials = $true 
    $xia.Url = {URL}
    Write-Host $xia.GET_AuthenticatedUserName() 

NOTE: When XIA Configuration Server is upgraded the steps to generate the WSDL file must be repeated.

NOTE: The client certificate can be installed in the local machine certificate store and the script updated accordingly.
