Download tool to get through Basic Auth

Highlighted
Alteryx Certified Partner

Hi All,


I have a mission to get through some basic auth sites.

I was using the base64encoder to get the token.

 

Am I missing anything? That is the process using download and headers?

I can share more info if needed.


Thanks,
Jordan

Hi JordyMichael,

 

What are you trying to connect to?

 

This is very little info to provide any help - Alteryx's Download tool is an implementation of cURL and is capable of connecting with many Internet protocols like APIs, websites, FTP servers etc.

 

Depending on what you're trying to connect to, there should be some guidelines in terms of specific values for headers, call type: GET/POST, credentials etc.

 

Do you have any reference of your destination entity?

 

Thanks,

Rafal
