What is Encoding method used for Username and Password in HTTPPost method?

  
Hello Community members,

I am posting a request to api using HTTPPost method of ardoHTTP extension. I want to know what is the encryption method used to send the username and password to an api. 

Please check the attached screenshot.

If it was through query string, I am not able to see the query string in browser.

Please help.

Thanks,
Suraj Borade
Hi there Suraj,

ardoHTTP uses HTTP Basic Authentication to pass the credentials to the request. The credentials are sent in an Authorization header encoded with base64.

Also, since version 9 the OutSystems Platform supports REST web services which obsoletes ardoHTTP to make requests.

Any particular reason for you not to be using this new OutSystems Platform capability?
