Basic Authentication using RestAssured

Carvia Tech | July 10, 2019 | | 31 views

In this article we will explore how to access Basic Auth protected resource from Rest Assured testcase, with a coding sample.

Lets say you have a REST endpoint that requires basic auth.

Request Body
	"wp_user_id": "as81hudh87hg8",
	"name": "Foo"
    "data": "uuid",
    "success": true,
    "errorCode": 0

Let’s further assume that username and password for accessing this resource are: wbc_test_user/ZiUN3NB12h

We can write the below TestCase in RestAssured that will make a post call on the Basic Auth protected resource.
import io.restassured.http.ContentType;
import org.junit.Test;
import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;

import static io.restassured.RestAssured.given;
import static org.hamcrest.core.IsEqual.equalTo;

public class BasicAuthTest {

    private final Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(OAuth2Test.class);

    public void basicAuthLogin() {
        String username = "wbc_test_user";
        String password = "ZiUN3NB12h";

        String jsonBody = "{\n" +
                "  \"wp_user_id\": \"as81hudh87hg8\",\n" +
                "  \"name\": \"Foo\"\n" +

        given().auth().preemptive().basic(username, password)
                .body("success", equalTo(true));
