Digest authorization is similar to basic authorization. The only difference is that when you use digest authorization, the credentials are sent in an encrypted form.
After adding a digest authorization profile to a request, you can edit the settings.
To configure digest authorization, specify the following settings:
Username – The username to be used for authorization.
Password – The password to be used for authorization.
Domain – Optional. The domain name to be used for authorization.
Pre-emptive auth – Specifies if ReadyAPI will wait until an authorization challenge is received to send the credentials. The parameter has the following options:
Use global preference – Use the settings defined in the HTTP Settings global preferences.
Authenticate pre-emptively – For this request only. Do not wait until an authorization challenge is received to send the credentials.
Incoming WSS – Optional. The Incoming WS-Security configuration to be used for decrypting and validating incoming SOAP responses.
Outgoing WSS – Optional. The Outgoing WS-Security configuration to be used for processing outgoing SOAP requests.
