Basic HTTP authentication through admin console on WAS 7
posted 6 years ago
I am trying to do Basic HTTP Authentication for web services (We are the web services provider and trying to secure web services through admin console). Following steps are given for WAS 6 to perform basic authentication. We are using WAS 7, and don’t find any relevant configuration steps for WAS 7. WAS7 onwards security settings are changed and seems IBM documents are not updated for version 7.
Steps for Basic Authentication using WAS 6 through Admin console
Open the administrative console.
a.Click Applications > Enterprise Applications > application_instance > Manage Modules > module_instance > Web services: Client security bindings.
b.Click HTTP Basic Authentication to access the HTTP basic authentication panel. Enter the values in the HTTP Basic Authentication panel.
It would be really great help if some one could suggest how to do Basic HTTP authentication through admin console on WAS 7.
