Hey all,

Recently, I have started to need a Python Notebook to run every minute. This provides real time updating of submitted requests to a ticketing system that is directly involved with geolocation by Survey123.

The ArcGIS Notebook does not allow any scheduled tasks to operate on a minute frequency, so I planned to stage this on a server that would run this through task scheduler.

During my attempts to get this running on the server, I seem to have encountered an issue where I cannot log into the Portal, no matter the combination of my credentials. I would normally use:

GIS("https://portalname.domain.com/webadapter_name", "DOMAIN\\user.account", "password"

But I was met with "Invalid username or password" testing cases and combinations of uppercase and lowercase letters did not change anything.

Using this it was the same:

GIS("https://portalname.domain.com/webadapter_name", "sharing1", "password")

I ended up attempting with Oauth2 and I would much rather not enter an authentication key every single minute, GET requests did not prove viable in ways of getting the oauth key.

How should I proceed with automation and  authenticate with my portal when ('home') is not able to be used?

 

Thank you in advance!

Sounds like your portal is connected to your active directory accounts maybe?  If that's the case, what we do is create a new portal account that doesn't use AD to authenticate and this is the account used for authentication within any scripting.

 

Also: if you have ArcGIS Pro open and you are logged into the portal, does your script run successfully then to create the GIS object?

Thank you for the reply James,

I believe that may be the best way to go, you are correct in the AD sync, just wanted to confirm before we purchased another creator account and made the user.

I appreciate the response and I believe that solves it!
