I have already configured BSC service in SharePoint 2013, I created an external content type in SharePoint Designer, everything is ok.

But unfortunately, When I tried to browse an external list from the browser.

I got

Login failed for user ‘NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON’

I tried to check this stack exchange thread

SharePoint Business Connectivity Services (BCS) Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'

but it's not helped me! Any help I will be appreciated.

This problem might occur because of the connections authentication mode is not assigned to BDC Identity.

  • Below Connection properties -> Select Client -> Below Secure Store Application ID -> Select BDC Identity.

For more details you can check Login failed for user ‘NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON’ in SharePoint Business Connectivity Service

  • open SharePoint designer > external content type > check the connections. also open the link that should instruct you
