Hi,

I wat to use basic auth with Parasoft virtual service. I am able to add the authentication to the virtual asset, but not able to correlate the incoming request's basic auth to that I have provided in the asset. Any suggestions or a reference document please?

    Hi,

    Normally authentication would be setup on the container/server (tomcat) level but it sounds like your use case is to have the virtual asset "perform" the authentication of the user and correlate the incoming user to some data?

    Yes I need virtual asset to perform the authentication

    Hi,

    There isn't an out-of-the-box option on a responder to perform "basic" auth. It could be done using a custom responder correlation that decodes the auth header and then checks if the credentials are valid.
