Product Catalog Schedule - Basic auth or something else?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

I am using the "Scheduled Upload" feature of our product catalog. I have the CSV of our product catalog available at a URL with basic authorization. I expected the username/password to be send via Basic Authentication in the `HTTP_AUTHORIZATION` header but I'm not seeing that. Is this a bug, or is the username/password supposed to be used differently?

 

Thanks!

Jack

You can only use htaccess password protection, as far as I have tested.

 

Hope it helps.
