In this SharePoint tutorial, we will discuss how to fix unable to obtain the application proxy for the context sharepoint 2013 error.
As part of configuring the PowerPivot Service application, we need to run “spPowerPivot.msi” to connect with Secure Store Service and PowerPivot service application. I got the below error as highlighted in the below screenshot. The error says: unable to obtain the application proxy for the context.
Unable to obtain the application proxy for the context
Failure while running action: create unattended account for datarefresh
Cannot create unattended account for data refresh because there is not enough information to locate current proxy group.
Unable to obtain the application proxy for the context SharePoint 2013
We need to ensure the below 2 to fix this issue:
- BDC and Secure Store service Applications are included/configured in case you are configuring the Power Pivot at the FARM level if not ensure that those 2 application services are configured at the desired web application level.
- Ensure that the “SharePoint Web Services Root” Application Pool is running in IIS in the application server.
Steps to ensure the above 2 checks
Open the SharePoint 2013 central administration -> Application management
Then click on Service Applications -> Configure service application associations
Check the web application(s)
Make sure the BDC and secure store service application checkboxes are marked.
If they are not then please tick the checkbox and click OK
After you do the necessary changes do an IISRESET and rerun the “spPowerPivot.msi” to complete the Power Pivot configuration.
