There's a great example on the wiki. Here's the example:


curl -k -c $COOKIES "$HOST/authenticated/identity"

curl -k -L -b $COOKIES -c $COOKIES -d j_username=$USER -d j_password=$PASSWORD "$HOST/authenticated/j_security_check"

# If this line returns the JSON representation of work item 1, authentication was successful
#curl -k -b $COOKIES "$HOST/oslc/workitems/1.json"

Hi Evan,
How can do this Auth using REST client ?

Kevin Ramer commented Mar 12 '15, 10:54 a.m.

Do you mean the RESTClient browser add-on ?  If so, login via browser, then go to the rest client addon.   There are other authentication examples provided using Perl scripts you can find in this site.

I'm not sure what you mean by "REST client". You can use the REST APIs from a programming language of your choice, using the flow described in the link.

You said:

Just login to the repository as if to visit the repository, then go to the RESTClient and tool around.  e.g.  look at the root services document, etc.
