7. Activate Basic Authentication on REST API

Open /usr/share/tomcat/webapps/engine-rest/WEB-INF/web.xml.


Verify it works by accessing the URL https://<host>:8443/engine-rest/incident/count. It should display a validation window where you have to enter the credentials of the newly created user from the previous step. Considering there is no process deployed, it should return the value 0.

8. Configure Camunda User Base

Access the URL https://<host>:8443/camunda/. Accessing the link for the first time will give the user creation page. Type in all relevant information. Remember the credentials you used as you will need them later on.
