Use basic HTTP authentication

If you check "Use Basic HTTP Authentication", then 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.

For more information on supported HTTP security, see configuring an HTTP source and HTTP target.
