I have an issue with accessing PI Web API 2015 R2 from different source while having it crawled.
PI Server, PI Web 2015 R2 & Crawler installed on the same machine.
A domain account is used for both the crawler and the PI Web API service.
I now want to have the following three things.
a. Use chrome and tools like Postman to interact with PI Web API
b. Have the crawler running
c. Access to the data using my Mac which is not on the same domain.
It seems I can have two, but not all three by changing the security settings in the AF configuration.
If I use Kerberos only, I can have a. and b., but my mac not being in the same domain gets refused.
If I use both kerberos and basic, then I a. and c., but due to the issue listed on KB01229, I lose access from Chrome.
If I use basic, then I have a. and c., but the crawler seems to refuse to crawl.
My best option so far is to use basic and periodically add in Kerberos on so that that crawling can happen.
