Passing HTTP Basic Authorization Code to REST API

Passing HTTP Basic Authorization Code to REST API

I am having trouble authenticating with my CRM's REST API. Ultimately I want to pass a new registered user from my Wed Assist store to the CRM. I dumbed-down the code to see what the problem is. In the attached paged, I want to do a GET to return the contacts in my CRM. It looks like the error I am getting is that I am not passing the authorization through properly in the header. The API wants me to use HTTP Basic Authorization. The URL I am testing with is http://1to1microsites.com/simple.php I am attaching that php page, the js page and a txt with a properly formatted credential in Base64. Can you help me with this please?

Use jQuery's beforeSend callback to add an HTTP header with the authentication information:

beforeSend: function (xhr) {
xhr.setRequestHeader ("Authorization", "Basic " + btoa(username + ":" + password));
},

I'm afraid since this doesn't pertain to a webassist product I'd have to get you to sign up for a premiere support ticket to help you debug your code and get this working.

I could try to help but don't have any experience with them directly, so I couldn't make any promises. I'd be doing google searches and analyzing their documentation to try to figure out what the solution is.

Go ahead and see if they respond and sign up for a premier support ticket if you want me to help and I'll do what I can.
