Hi, I'm training to send an output event from FIWARE CEP (Proton), using the REST consumer, to an ActiveMQ queue. The credential for access the ActiveMQ queue are included in the URL, as http://user:passwrd@X.X.X.X:xxxx/api/..., but I have the following error:

com.ibm.hrl.proton.webapp.resources.EventResource submitNewEvent
INFO: events sent to proton runtime...
org.apache.commons.httpclient.auth.AuthChallengeProcessor selectAuthScheme
INFO: basic authentication scheme selected
org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpMethodDirector processWWWAuthChallenge
INFO: No credentials available for BASIC 'ActiveMQRealm'@X.X.X.X
com.ibm.hrl.proton.server.executorServices.SimpleThreadFactory$ProtonExceptionHandler uncaughtException
SEVERE: Uncaught exception in thread: Thread[4,5,main],exception: com.ibm.hrl.proton.adapters.rest.client.RESTException: com.ibm.hrl.proton.adapters.rest.client.RESTException: Could not perform POST of event instance: ...
with request headers:
Content-Type: text/plain

Host: X.X.X.X:xxxx
Content-Length: 389
to consumer http://user:passwrd@X.X.X.X:xxx/api/m..., responce result: 401

Seems like that Proton doesn't extract the credential from the URL.
Anyone else had the same problem?

The CEP GE does not support this kind of authentication. It does support adding X-Auth-Token to the HTTP header of the request.

This can be done by adding to the CEP REST consumer definition an AuthToken parameter.

From the CEP user guide (can be found here):

AuthToken – an optional parameter. When set, it is added as an X-Auth-Token HTTP header of the request.
