Problem conclusion

  • This works as designed. The authentication used by DM was
    changed between 4.0 and 4.0.1 preventing RPE's
    authentication detection mechanism from working. Because of
    that the authentication property must be explicitly set to
    OAuth for RPE to be able to connect. Doing this will not
    only ensure document generation works but it will also
    provide a boost in performance.
    
    The automatic authentication detection is something that is
    not fail proof given all the particularities of all the
    authentication methods. Also it incures significant
    performance penalties. For that we recommend specifying the
    authentication mechanism whenever the user knows it.
