Adding Basic Auth Header to URL

Post by Vaughan.Douglas » Wed Jul 12, 2017 4:21 pm

We're trying to add set of credentials and pass a basic authentication header in order to bypass our often onerous login process. We're not having any luck whatsoever. Has anyone had any luck accomplishing this?

Thanks!!

Hi,

I guess you refer to basic HTTP authentication? Did you already have a look at stackoverflow?
I've never tried to accomplish this, but it should be feasible:

This is basically what we're trying to accomplish, but it's not working.
