Authentication for Alfresco Content Services on-premise

You use HTTP basic access authentication to provide your user name and password to the Alfresco Content Services server.

If you invoke an API method in your client application, you provide an HTTP Authorization header with the user name and password combined into a string "username:password". For example if your user name is fred and your password is mypassword the Authorization string is "fred:mypassword". The authorization header must be base-64 encoded.
