We are trying to use GET commands with the UFL Connector v188.8.131.52 to retrieve data from a REST endpoint. However, the endpoint requires that clients first use a POST method to login prior to executing GET commands. When you supply the Data Source in the Connector with a username and password, is that what the Connector does when it is started? Unfortunately, when we try it, we receive an "HTTP status code: Unauthorized" error message in the Connector's event log. However, we have confirmed that the credentials are correct by accessing the REST endpoint using a web browser. Appreciate any insights folks can share!
Alternatively, I am considering using a script (e.g., Python) to execute the login POST, GET command, and PUT the results to the Connector's REST endpoint, similar to this GitHub example. However, that seems like a lot of unnecessary work if the Connector can handle it for us out of the box.
