[InvalidOperationException: Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly ending in '/AuthenticateUser'.] RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-335630921 posted

    I had a webservice that had worked fine for months and suddenly started throwing the "Request format is unrecognized..." exception. The service was already properly configured without GET and POST protocols as it was working on proxy server.

    But to resolve this issue I tried to add GET and POST protocols but still not working, so that was not the issue.

    but from unexpectedely I hit the service from the browser I do get "Hello World" method. so whereever there is input parameter it is not working.

    Error description is :

    [InvalidOperationException: Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly

    ending in '/AuthenticateUser'.]
       System.Web.Services.Protocols.WebServiceHandlerFactory.CoreGetHandler(Type

    type, HttpContext context, HttpRequest request, HttpResponse response) +405961
