HPNA - Cisco.com Credentials - Not valid



I am currently trying to setup accounts with cisco credentials linked to them but i seem to be getting the same issue over and over.


It comes back with The supplied credentials for cisco.com were not valid


however if i go onto cisco.com and use these details i can login fine, download files and software without any issue.


Anyone have any idea why this might be happening ?

Re: HPNA - Cisco.com Credentials - Not valid

Well, based on my past experiences with this - it always came down to firewall rules blocking NA's requests to Cisco as opposed to me trying it (say) from my PC.  

Since you can try it outside of NA and it works but doesn't in NA, I'd say check firewall rules.  If you have Windows NA, you could try to open IE (Chrome, FF, etc) and go to Cisco and log in - does that work?  

I'm guessing SWIM service is running?  

Hope this helps,

I guess HPE stopped that integration , not sure you can check that.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is announcing feature obsolescence impacting HPE Network Automation (NA) customers effective as of the dates set forth below. Integration between NA and cisco.com for the purpose of software image management (SWIM) is no longer provided starting with the NA 10.20 release.  While NA still supports device image upgrade functionality in general, the ability to receive upgrade recommendations and download images from cisco.com directly into NA is no longer included starting with NA 10.20.  NA 10.10 and prior versions will continue to provide integration with cisco.com, however with limited support pursuant to HPE's Software Support Policy.
