Hi team,
I’m using a “Basic Auth” to test authentication on my API.
So I have a username and a password, but I can enter them just once; even if I reload the page, I can’t have the Pop up to re-enter them again unless I delete my API and re-create it again, which isn’t practical.

Thank you for your help

Hi,

A browser will usually cache basic auth details, try using an incognito session. See this wikipedia entry on how basic authentication works: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_access_authentication It’s right there under the “security” section.

Thank you for the answer,
I used an incognito session, cleared the browser cache & cookies but I still ave the same issue

This is not an issue with Tyk, it is an issue with how browsers handle Basic Auth:
