Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

As part of the configuration of the Oracle WebCenter with Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) there is a validation to be made, which is to access the following URL:

http://webcenter_hostname:port/rsscrawl -- username / password

The following is seen within the browser:
Error 401--Unauthorized

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

10.4.2 401 Unauthorized

The request requires user authentication. The response MUST include a WWW-Authenticate header field (section 14.46) containing a challenge applicable to the requested resource. The client MAY repeat the request with a suitable Authorization header field (section 14.8). If the request already included Authorization credentials, then the 401 response indicates that authorization has been refused for those credentials. If the 401 response contains the same challenge as the prior response, and the user agent has already attempted authentication at least once, then the user SHOULD be presented the entity that was given in the response, since that entity MAY include relevant diagnostic information. HTTP access authentication is explained in section 11.

Changes
