Error description

  • When activating "User Authentication Required" on default "HTTP
    Server Adapter", the server asks for basic authentication
    credentials when accessing demo BP URI "/hello" as expected.
    
    When accessing "/hello-war" (or any other deployed war URI),
    no basic auth credentials are required.
    
    The URI should be protected whether behind the URI is a BP or a
    war.
    

Local fix

  • The workaound for this is to remove the entries for GET and
    POST in the first <security-constraint> block in
    <install_dir>/noapp/etc/webdefault.xml.
