Issue/Introduction

Upgrade from 20.2.10 to 21.2.8, when I attempt to browser DA's REST services http://{DA_HOST}:8581/rest, it prompts for username and password, what would be the username and password?    This was not required in the past.                 

Cause

New functionality as of 21.2.1

Environment

Dx NetOps Performance Management 21.2.1+

Resolution

See https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/performance-management/21-2/apis/data-aggregator-rest-webservices.html

As a security mechanism, provide HTTP basic authentication credentials with a valid username and password over HTTP/HTTPS when making calls to the data aggregator REST services. This is the same username and password that you use to log in to NetOps Portal. The REST logins are logged on the data aggregator in the 
$KARAF_HOME/data/logs/AuthenticationAudit.log file.  Set the Context-type field to application/xml when you perform operations using data aggregator REST web services.
