Trouble with Basic Authentication using REST API

Content

Greetings,

I am having trouble interpreting how to use Basic Authentication with the TBE Rest API. I am able to use the API with the Cookie based authentication method (where I POST to the /login Resource to retrieve the token and then add the authToken to the Cookie...) but, when I attempt to generate the Basic digest for the Authorization header I am unable to successfully perform a valid call.

According to the documentation, is appears to be as simple as defining the Username parameter in the following syntax

[user_name]

Howdy, Stranger!
