Kentico custom WebAPI with Basic HTTP Authentication

Yannick - asked on June 3, 2016 17:19

I followed the guidelines at to build a custom Web API controller. Also I enabled Basic HTTP Authentication in the Kentico Administrator UI in Settings -> Integration -> REST -> Authentication type and decorated the ApiController with the Authorize attribute to limit authorization to a specific user. When I do an HTTP POST request to the ApiController, I always receive the error "Authorization has been denied for this request.". What am I missing?
