Basic Authentication with Escape
The 'Basic' authentication preset is designed for straightforward authentication scenarios:
- Credentials Encoding: User's credentials (username and password) are encoded in base64.
- Header Attachment: The encoded credentials are attached to the request headers.
- Authorization Header: The client sends these credentials in the Authorization header of the HTTP request.
This method provides a simple and direct way to authenticate users, without requiring additional server requests for user creation or authentication. It is best suited for scenarios where simplicity and ease of implementation are prioritized.
Note: While this method is straightforward, it's less secure compared to more advanced authentication methods.
