REST - Authentication credentials were missing or incorrect



Getting Authentication error below trying to invoke REST service using Basic Authentication profile

Error Messages

{"code":"MONETA_ERROR.INVALID_CREDENTIALS","message":"Authentication credentials were missing or incorrect"}

Steps to Reproduce

Not Applicable

Root Cause

This issue was determined to be a product enhancement request. Custom token based authentication needs to be performed using custom library and client java code. This is curently not supported in Pega 7.1. Only Basic, NTLM and OAuth authentication profiles can be used to make connect-rest calls.


An enhancement request has been created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
