By default, Jitterbit will negotiate with the endpoint to determine which authentication methods are supported, and use the provided credentials with one of those protocols.
Supported HTTP Authentication Options
These HTTP authentication options are supported:
HTTP Digest authentication with an IE flavor
HTTP Target/Source Example
Using Basic HTTP Authentication
If you check “Use Basic HTTP Authentication”, then Jitterbit Harmony will not try to negotiate any other type authentication, even if others are available. Since with Basic HTTP the user name/login and password are sent in clear text, using Basic HTTP Authentication is not recommended.
