Authorization HTTP Header removed.

Recommended Posts

I am load testing a REST service that requires a basic authentication authorization header.

When I set a HTTP Header, in the Request itself or in the Profile Defaults, it is removed from the request that is made.

Request Headers

Accept-Language : en-GB
Accept-Tenant : uk
Authorization : Basic aVBob25lLVYxOmVjNjhlNTY3NjU4NGRkN2ZiZjMxN2IzOWY0M2VmNWY1MDJhMjljNzc=
Accept-Charset : utf-8
Host : http://xxxxx-labs.com
User-Agent: perftesting
Content-Type :  application/json


It also appears to be stripping out the Content-Type Header.


This worked fine in 2.0 but we have now upgraded to 3.0 and are seeing the above behaviour.
