Answer:

Yes, EasyCron supports HTTP basic authentication.

There are 3 ways you can add HTTP basic authentication credential to your cron job requests:


1. Entering user and password in "HTTP basic auth" fields in your cron job creating/editing form (recommended).


2. Putting user and password in HTTP header:

By adding
Authorization: Basic __BASE64_ENCODED_CREDENTIAL__
to your "HTTP Header" field of your cron job setting, you will be authorized.
Note: __BASE64_ENCODED_CREDENTIAL__ is base64-encoded string of "user:password". You can use online base64-encoder https://www.base64encode.org/ to do the encoding.


3. Putting user and password in URL:

An example URL is as below:
https://user:password@www.example.com/cron.php?foo=bar

If your user or password contains special characters, you may use percent-encoded user or password. There is an online encoder at http://www.url-encode-decode.com/. Please encode user or password separately and put them into the final URL.

If you provide more than one set of credential, the priority will be: method #1 > method #2 > method #3.
