Configure Basic authentication in ODATA web connector

Configure basic authentication in the ODATA web connector.

Good evening, I have been trying to connect from the odata connector to an odata service with basic authentication, but I have not succeeded. I would like to know if there is an example of how to configure the odata connector with basic authentication.

The user data and the password, I have put them as plain text, I do not know if they should be encoded in base 64 or something similar.

I have tried the odata service with Postman and it works correctly for me.

Re: Configure Basic authentication in ODATA web connector

finally we solved it by putting in the header field
Basic VXN1YXJpbzpDbGF2ZQ==   :smileyhappy:

the mistake we had was that in the header we are putting Authorization: Basic VXN1YXJpbzpDbGF2ZQ== the name of the heading (Authorization: ), when it was only the content (Basic VXN1YXJpbzpDbGF2ZQ==)
