Background: I had http authentication enabled by htaccess on my test site. I had created REST resource using Drupal 8 core REST web services modules and views. When i used authentication as basic_auth than on Test site got access forbidden 404 for each page request. Uninstall basic_authentication make it work but i want basic_authentication should work for my test site. What would be the better alternative for this?
