    Default Acquire xlsx from http

    Via e-mail, I received a http-link to an xlsx which resides on an internal web server.
    If I click this link from within the e-mail, my browser starts and I'm offered to safe the xlsx to disk.

    I'm trying to automate this pocedure using LAE. I have copied the URL into the HTTP node.
    The output I get is a 401 Unauthorized error, the header output field says:

    Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5
    SPRequestGuid: 3871ce6f-e367-4bd6-b193-4ecc0c638604
    WWW-Authenticate: Negotiate
    WWW-Authenticate: NTLM
    X-Powered-By: ASP.NET
    MicrosoftSharePointTeamServices: 14.0.0.7006
    X-MS-InvokeApp: 1; RequireReadOnly

    Why is it that I can retrieve this file using my browser, but not with the HTTP node? Is there some trick to it?

    Thanks for any help!

    Best regards, Bart.

    Try adding your username and password on the "Optional" tab.

    The web server that is sending you the file likely supports Single-Signon and is recognizing the fact that you are already logged into your PC.

    Thanks so much!
    The thing is that I don't have a real username & password for this (SharePoint) site. I log on via Citrix on a VDI using a username and code which is generated by a 'Vasco' reader. This code is different every time I log on. There is no password.
    I can find no place on the SharePoint site where I can check which username I have or whether I can reset/change my password.
    I have now asked the service desk at the client's what I might do. Might well be impossible?
    Best regards,
    Bart.
