    Hi, I've just begun using Sitefinity and would like to know how I can test the existing webservices from a separate client via HTTP methods like GET and POST. For example, I want to use /Sitefinity/Services/Security/User.svc/Authenticate but I can't use the service (always gets 401) if I'm not logged in using the account given to me after registering.

     How do I include my login credentials on each API request? Thanks a lot!

    Hello Julious Cious,

    More information about the Authentication and Service Calls in Sitefinity could be found in the following articles:

    I hope this information helps.
