iwd and 8021x

Good morning all,
I am trying to connect to my school network, I am using iwd and I need to configure a file to be able to access an 8021x network, I followed the little tutorial on the Arch wiki, but I tried to several times and it doesn't work, I get Operation failed every time! Subsequently, I noticed that there are 2 other ways to be able to connect on an 8021x network, I would like to know how can I do to know which way I have to configure my essid.8021x file to connect to the network. Ps: my file is not named essid.8021x ^^
and of course no school staff can answer my question!

here is my .8021x file

[Security]
EAP-Method=PWD
EAP-Identity=my_school_mail
EAP-Password=my_password

[Settings]
AutoConnect=True

I have tried without a password and still get Operation failed

Re: iwd and 8021x

I just had to figure this out today as I'm finally back to campus and did a fresh arch install on an old laptop (in general I like iwd better that netctl, but this took a while to figure out). My school does not require a certificate and in fact I couldn't figure out where to find it. Also we don't use an anonymous identity. So, YMMV, but here is my <ESSID>.8021x file:

 [Security]
EAP-Method=PEAP
EAP-PEAP-Phase2-Method=MSCHAPV2
EAP-PEAP-Phase2-Identity=my_school_mail
EAP-PEAP-Phase2-Password=my_password

[Setting]
Autoconnect=true

I was pretty shocked when this worked!

IWD and netctl aren't really alternatives.  IWD is an alternative to wpa_supplicant.
