Data API Authentication
SingleStore's Data API uses Basic Authentication, which is a simple authentication standard available within HTTP.
Authorization: Basic <Base-64 encoded username:password>
For example, the Basic Authorization header for the username
demo and password
Afu4XjzB1ns would appear as follows, where
ZGVtbzpBZnU0WGp6QjFucw== is the Base-64 encoding of the
Authorization: Basic ZGVtbzpBZnU0WGp6QjFucw==
If the server requires the user agent to authenticate itself after receiving an unauthenticated request, it will respond with a 401 Unauthorized status and the WWW-Authenticate header.
As the Basic Authentication method transfers the username and password over the network in clear text, it must be used in conjunction with HTTPS/SSL for added security.
