Hello,

  1. Build a string of the form username:password
  2. Base64 encode the string
  3. Go to Soap UI and add the following header to your request

 Header name paramter: “Authorization” with content “Basic ” followed by the encoded string. For example, for the user fred:fred the content will be 

Basic ZnJlZDpmcmVk
