Web service authentication

Postby psimonsen » Tue Jan 03, 2006 2:23 pm

Hi,

I am trying to load-test a series of web services that however requires basic authentication. Is there anyway to get ants load to use authentication when calling web services?

Best Regards,
Psimon

Hello,

Unfortunately not. ANTS Load only supports open webservices that do not require any kind of authentication because the webservice wrapper we use does not add the appropriate headers.

This is now possible in version 1.70. What you can do is use the Authentication library to authenticate to the site with a regular WebClient.GET. This will work for webservices that require Windows Authentication, but probably not basic. More information is available in the Knowledge Base.
