Orcanos REST API


Orcanos REST API will be used for test automation integration


We are using Basic Authentication to authenticate with your credentials. In the basic authentication, a user needs to send the authentication key in the specific format.

To generate the key a user needs to contact the user name and password with colon sign (:) and encode the string with base64 encoder. It can be done with btoa and atob javascript function.

For example:

And pass the base64 string into the header field included with space and Basic keyword.

For example: 

Key : Authorization

Value : Basic dXNlcjE6dXNlckAxMjMK

How to encode the credentials into base64:

Format of Username and password should be like Username:Password

Example: User1:User@123

Convert this into base64 and it will be something like dXNlcjE6dXNlckAxMjMK

Note: From the Postman ( https://www.getpostman.com/ ) or any REST client testing tool, it can be added easily from the REST client UI. 

Authorization Header added in the Postman tool:


What errors and status codes can a user expect?

  • 500: An error has occurred or something was wrong
  • 200: Data is OK, Success
  • 401: Unauthorized, When Authorization token is not passed.
