You must apply the Basic HTTP Authentication scheme when Orchestrator is configured with LDAP, or if you use the Orchestrator server to access a third-party system that is configured with LDAP.

The Basic HTTP Authentication scheme allows you to authenticate against Orchestrator or a third-party system by including an Authorization header in the API calls that you make. You must provide a base64-encoded credentials in the Authorization header. Orchestrator uses the same credentials to authenticate on your behalf against third-party systems that are configured with LDAP.

For details about the Basic HTTP Authentication, see RFC 2617.
