Basic API Authentication does not work with http://user:pass@URL
|Category:||Accounts / authentication|
When posting an Issue using the API, for example to this URL:
it fails on line: authenticate_with_http_basic do |username, password| of the file app/controllers/application_controller.rb
However, when I test with a Authorization header added, with user encoded as explained in: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_access_authentication#Client_side
EG: Basic QWxhZGRpbjpvcGVuIHNlc2FtZQ==
I believe this is a bug, and for the moment I do now know how to fix this in Ruby (not my language).
However I am trying to use the fulmo plugin, and would rather not be forced to customize it to send auth data using Headers, as I'd have to create a whole new plugin.
