    Rest-Service using Security-Constraint fails to authenticate

    ganix Newbie

      Hi,

       

      we have a rest service deployed in a war file. Running on AS6 this service could be secured by setting a security-constraint in the web.xml and adding users.properties and roles.properties to webapp/WEB-INF directory.

       

      However, running on Wildfly 8.2, the service seems to ignore the credentials defined in these properties files, and returns 401 unauthorized.

       

      Now I am wondering what is the most simple way to implement a BASIC authentication in a webservice running on Wildfly?

       

      Thanks for any comments,

      Henning
