HTTP API - authentication?

Dirk-Jan Uittenbogaard

When performing HTTP GET's to my SX10 I keep getting

<head>

        <title>401 Unauthorized</title>

    </head>

How can I authenticate in an HTTP GET request?

        (think about a Python application that needs information from 1 SX10)

Python3 code;

import requests

requests.packages.urllib3.disable_warnings()

sys_url = "https://10.1.1.34/getxml?location=/Status/SystemUnit"


r = requests.get(sys_url, auth=('admin', 'password'), verify=False)


print(r.text)
