Access is Denied when submitting Task Job to Azure Media Services

When submitting Job task in Azure media service it is giving error “Access Denied”.

ITask task = job.Tasks.AddNew("My task",processor,"H264 Broadband 720p",TaskOptions.ProtectedConfiguration);
// Specify the input asset to be encoded.
task.InputAssets.Add(asset);
task.OutputAssets.AddNew("Output asset",AssetCreationOptions.None);
// Launch the job.
job.Submit();


This is the code segment I have used. This is working in my local machine but I published to Cloud Web Site it is giving access denied error.


I found that the  TaskOptions.ProtectedConfiguration caused this error. When you use this option it is accessing client machine certificate store. Since running context does not have sufficient permission; causing  access denied error.


So change the TaskOptions.None. it will work.
