    I'm always getting an "invalid format" exception when using the following header in a web service data source as parameter:

    Authorization="Bearer testeXAMpleKV1QILCJhbPlkIiJIUzI2NiIsImdpZCI6Im.893PSJ9eyJpc3MioiJzc4p3dCIsIkN1YiI6ImNiYjhkOWQ1LTMxYjYtNDJiNS3hYjZmLWI0NDliYThlNmNwNyIsImlhdCI6MTa3MTY4MjUwOSviZ1hwI56xNTcxNjkzMz25LcJuYW1lIjoiYvRtaW3iLCkwcmVmZXJyZWRfdXNlcm5hbWUiOiJhZG1pkiIsInJvbGVzIjpbIkRhdGFSZWFkZXIiLCqBtG1ebmlzdEJhdG9yIiwiRGF0YVdyaXRlciIsIlrhc2tSZWFkZXIiLCJUYXNrV3JsdGVyIiwiUmVwb3J0UmVhZGVyIiwzUmVwb3J0V3JpdGVyIikiVXNlolJlYWRlciIsIlVzZpJXcnl0zXIiXSwiTGFuZ3VhZ2UiOhJmcl9DSCi9XfywW.w8OpuvK7H9lr0hnEJMVe9UKy27GDjyLpOuInPc"


    The actual error message: The format of value '="Bearer testeXAMpleKV1QILCJh.....pOuInPc"' is invalid.


    Any suggestions?

    Hello Kevin,

    I need to know which version of Telerik Reporting you use. Recently, we have found an issue that was introduced after Exception is thrown when trying to configure Authentication parameters in WebServiceDataSource. If it's the same, you can revert to

    We had another issue related to the parameters of WebServiceDataSource in If you use this version, you need to upgrade to the latest version- 13.2 19.1011

    If the issue is not resolved, I will need more information about it and when exactly the error is thrown. You can also send us screenshots.

    Progress Telerik

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items
