Hi @asmita - Are you sure your API supports basic authentication? In basic authentication, you don’t have to perform a login. You just include the user:pass combination in Base64 format in the Authorization header. It should allow access to the resource when the credentials are valid. For invalid credentials, it should return error 401 instead of redirecting to the login page.

Can you show a screenshot of the authentication test function?
