SetAuthentication (HttpRequest subroutine)
Issue username/password credentials (HttpRequest class)
The SetAuthentication callable method lets you present credentials to a password-protected portion of a website. Such portions of a site are those where the server returns a 401 return code (authentication is required) for a request-for-URL in that portion of the site.
httpRequest:SetAuthentication( userID, password, realm)
|httpRequest||A previously defined and instantiated HttpRequest object.|
|userID||The user name for the protected area.|
|password||The password for the protected area.|
|realm||The protected area of the site.|
- Once a SetAuthentication method is issued, the information passed is used to respond to any request to which the server responds with a
401 httpstatus code.
- The most recent SetAuthentication issued is the one that will be in effect.
- Authentication values created with SetAuthentication are cleared with the RemoveAuthentication method.
