Cannot instantiate the TaskService on a WCF service

Mar 16, 2010 at 5:49 PM

Trying to create\instantiate a TaskService object but not able to without providing a user id and password, I should mention also that a web application is pulling the task scheduler data via a WCF Service. Both the web application and the WCF service are hosted on the same server within IIS. I guess my question is can I instantiate the object in this scenario without providing a user id and password? The web service provides interface\contract to retrieve the data from the task scheduler.

                using (TaskService ts = new TaskService())
                    for (int i = 0; i < ts.RootFolder.Tasks.Count; i++)
                        // do somthing....


Web App <--> WCF Service <--> Task Scheduler

Your web app and WCF service are each running in the context of some local or domain account. That account's token is the one being used when you instantiate a TaskService without a username and password so it must have the security permission to access local system resources like the Task Scheduler. If you find another solution, please post it here.
