Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-52) API: FileTransfer - Basic Authentication
Date Sun, 17 Mar 2013 06:34:12 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-52:

Heh I did not know about that JS function. Not sure if it has broad support everywhere though,
but that's easy to test. In this case we would use btoa:

I'd rather we add this to cordova-js for this feature then, since I think all platforms have
the header support.

Yup, it will require that extra request for my method. My proposed patch was a quick and dirty
code insertion without having to muck about with any other working parts - tradeoff is the
extra request.

When I tested it, no - the creds in the URL are not read by the server, but who knows it might
just have been the server I was testing with.

> I'd appreciate an optional parameter for FileUploadOptions allowing to pass Basic Authentication
credentials. Combined with HTTPS, Basic Authentication can introduce minimal security when
upload files.
