Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Service Bus - Version 2.0 to 11.1.1.5.0 [Release Aqualogic Service Bus to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Need to implement a SOAP proxy service requiring HTTP basic authentication. In case of unsuccessful authentication, proxy should send SOAP fault back to clients so that they can identity the issue.
If basic authentication is configured on the proxy and credential provided by client aren't correct, WebLogic server rejects the request before it is processed by Oracle Service Bus (OSB) and SOAP fault cannot be sent back to clients.
