In this particular case, certificates were changed at IMS so thumbprint provided to the client requesting federation data is not getting validated and connection is termed non-secure. A certificate thumbprint is a hexadecimal string that uniquely identifies a certificate. IMS does not provide any data to such connection and refuses connection.
Usually in such events, client (PWDI server in this case) should be able to re-request and get a new thumbprint. In this case something is stopping it from doing that.
Thumbprint for IMS connection is available on ProjectWise Design Integration Server machine in C:\Program Files\Bentley\ProjectWise\bin (for default installation location secection) directory. Find and open Bentley.projectWise.IdentityproviderRP.Core.dll.cfg file (Bentley.projectWise.IdentityproviderRP.dll.cfg in case of old versions). Contact ProjectWise Technical Support group and get a new thumbprint (they will get it from developement team). Manually replace the value in above configuration file and attempt connection.
