Issue/Introduction

In a Service Management Environment with NTLM authentication configured, a popup is generated asking for authorization

The pop up reads:

Sign in to access this site

Authorization required by http://<servername>:<serverport>

Your connection to this site is not secure

Authentication to Service Desk Manager and Web Screen Painter work as expected

View logs in Service Catalog show these errors
