web_custom_request and authentication type "Preemptive"
We are using loadrunner function web_custom_request to submit a HTTP post request, and the request requires an authentication type set to “Preemptive” to make the HTTP post successful. Does anyone here know if there is way to set authentication type to “Preemptive” or equivalent in loadrunner? I tried different authentication options available in preferences of run-time-settings and none of them worked.
The POST request has been tested manually and is working fine from SOAP UI(version 4.5.2)as it has an option to select the authentication type “Preemptive”.
I am facing the same issue and I have tried with web_add_header("Authorization", "Basic authstring"); from the SOAPUI header. I am getting "Error reading XMLStreamReader." the same xml input is giving output in SOAPUI.
