401 Error Keeps Showing In The Log File When Using HTTP Basic Authentication filter (Doc ID 1670410.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 01, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle API Gateway - Version 11.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In OAG 11.1.2.x, a policy has been set up which contains a HTTP Basic Authentication filter.  When using the policy to communicate to a service, for every request a message;  401 "Authentication Required" is seen in the trace log, followed by a " 200 ok " message.

The flow is:
client - > OAG -> service -> OAG -> service

Even though the 401 error is seen, the request still executes and provides the expected results.
