Configure basic authentication

By default basic authentication is enabled, which means the server returns a basic authentication challenge. If desired, you can change that setting in the wsconfig.xml file.


  1. Open the wsconfig.xml file, located at:
    • (Windows) – C:\Program Files\NetApp\SANtricity Web Services Proxy
    • (Linux) – /opt/netapp/santricity_web_services_proxy
  2. Modify the following line in the file by specifying false (not enabled) or true (enabled).
    For example: <env key="enable-basic-auth">true</env>
  3. Save the file.
  4. Restart the Webserver service so the change takes effect.
