Our clients Authenticate and execute BridgeGateHTTP workflows using the Portal User Name and Password (over HTTPS ) two different ways.
First, and less common, they include the respectful key/value pairs in the URL &userName=[USER]&password=[PWD].
Second, they include HTTP header values as seen in the screen shot below.
The portal user must have BridgeGateHTTP Protocol security set. If the Get Data is set to ‘Authenticate’ checked, it will require the Portal username/password. If Authenticate is not checked, it will execute the workflow with no portal login validation.
If the BridgeGateHTTP workflow is set to authenticate and the credentials are not included, incorrect, or does not have the appropriate security permissions (BridgeGateHTTP) the client will receive a 403 error.
HTTP Status 403 – Authentication Credentials not found
HTTP Status 403 – Incorrect Login and/or Password
