how to use http authentication and tRestRequest (REST entry point)

Hi,
I created a REST service consisting out of a tRestRequest and that works fine. However now I want to add HTTP authentication (BASIC) to it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_access_authentication ).
But I cannot specify authentication or something like http header values to the tRestRequest component?
Who knows how to solve this?

Hi,
I just moved your topic to the ESB forum, a better sub forum for your thread.
Best,

I have the same issue. I checked the flag "Use HTTP Basic Authentication" but then? How authentication is managed? where i need to specify user and password?

Hi,
requests are authenticated against Karaf's JAAS realm (by default it is a file based realm authentication, see a file etc/users.properties). Note that by default all authenticated request are authorized.
Have fun
