In some older versions of REST server implementations, authentication is transmitted preemptively opposed to when a client connects to the server, and the server asks the client to login. In this scenario, the REST server requires authentication to occur in a request header upon connection.

In order to fulfil this requirement, a Request Header element can be added to the REST (post, Get, Put, etc.) command task. The Name value should be Authorization with a Value of Basic (base 64 encoded string for username:password) PLEASE NOTE, this does not include the brackets from the following image, it should be "Basic string value" where string value represents the base 64 encoded string of username:password.
