For Basic auth, you’ll want to handle incorrect credentials in the response handling of your Test request.  

 

If you’re developing in the UI, switch to code mode and add code similar to this in the response handling.  Be sure to check for the error or error codes your api actually returns:

 

  if (response.status === 401) {
throw new z.errors.Error(
// This message is surfaced to the user
'The username and/or password you supplied is incorrect',
'AuthenticationError',
response.status
);
}

return response;

If you’re using the CLI, heres a very simple, but complete, example: https://github.com/zapier/zapier-platform/tree/master/example-apps/basic-auth

Ya its working.. Thanks Zane..
