Hi Matt,

Basic authorization. The HTTP Header will take the form of Authorization: Basic {value}. The {value} part can differ from service to service, but usually it’s the base 64 encoding of the following string Username:Password. When dealing with OAuth2 apps, the username/password is often the Client Id and Client Secret.

Here is a KB article that goes into a bit more detail about auth method guidelines, best practices, and other tips.

Oops, sorry about that. Turns out that KB is just an internal one. But that blurb on the basic auth format is straight from it. Give that a shot and let me know if it works for you. - Michael Ligouri Wed 2/14/24 10:14 AM
