HTTP Client with Basic Auth

A client, which is secured with Basic auth can be used to connect to a secured service.
The client is enriched with the Authorization: Basic <token> header by passing the http:CredentialsConfig for the auth configuration of the client.

For more information on the underlying module, see the Auth module.

import ballerina/http;
import ballerina/log;
http:Client securedEP = check new("https://localhost:9090", {
    auth: {
        username: "alice",
        password: "123"
    },
    secureSocket: {
        cert: "../resource/path/to/public.crt"
    }
});

Defines the HTTP client to call the Basic auth secured APIs. The client is enriched with the Authorization: Basic <token> header by passing the http:CredentialsConfig for the auth configuration of the client.

public function main() {
    var response = securedEP->get("/foo/bar");
    if (response is http:Response) {
        log:printInfo(response.statusCode.toString());
    } else {
        log:printError("Failed to call the endpoint.", 'error = response);
    }
}

Send a GET request to the specified endpoint.

# Before testing this sample, first start a sample service secured with Basic Auth.
# To run this sample, navigate to the directory that contains the `.bal` file,
# and execute the `bal run` command below.
# (You may need to change the trusted certificate file path.)
