How to pass URL with userid/password in CSV Macro


I am using Table plugin in Confluence and using a CSV Macro feature to get a CSV file from a URL. This URL is password protected and returns a csv file.

If I pass the Userid/password in any webbrowser I get a csv file. But, If I pass the URL within Confluence it returns with 401 error

error because of: Server returned HTTP response code: 401 for URL:

is there a way to configure url id password in Confluence CSV URL macro?

What happes when you curl the URL? Do you get the CSV? Or a Basic Auth prompt/error?

If I use CURL or regular browser it returns me CSV file content.

Its probably a bug, write up an issue here: Confluence Table Plugin
