    WDC - REST API basic authentication

    Amit Sharma

      Hi,

      I am trying to connect to a REST API (web api), which requires basic authentication, with the web data connector.

      I have created one small Web data connector(WDC) for Collibra by taking reference of EarthquakeUSGS which is very similar to what I need. Basically I'm not very familiar with javascript. I am not able to get REST API basic authentication pop-up in WDC browser (in Tableau desktop). Any idea how to get this pop-up in WDC browser?  I have not mentioned any code for authentication.

      Can someone please help me with that part of the code which is used to get the basic authentication?

       

      Thanks,
