Why does SOAPProxy pass HTTP credentials unexpectedly to target web service?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We have a SOAPClient service that calls a SOAPProxy service.
  • The 401 error is occurring sporadically because the SOAPProxy (or any other component) sometimes is passing the http credentials 'xxxxx' to the proxied target WS.
  • The behavior we observe on the target WS is that (when this error occurs) the http basic credentials are being received which are not supposed to and thus the 401 error.
  • Why is that happening?
