http_password

Authenticate to third-party HTTP servers and gateways using RFC 2617 Basic or Digest authentication.

Syntax
http_password=password
Protocols
Support notes
Default

None

Remarks

This feature supports Basic and Digest authentication as described in RFC 2617.

With Basic authentication, passwords are included in HTTP headers in clear text; however, you can use HTTPS to encrypt the headers and protect this password. With Digest authentication, headers are not sent in clear text but are hashed.

You must use http_userid with this option.
