I'm using a chrome extension to display and visualize data from a jenkins server. I tried to start a certain build on that server using the jQuery function $.ajax(), but since the server is secured, I need to pass a username and password.
After googling for a while I found this format for the HTTP request:
I've tried both this, and a combination of username and the actual password, but nothing seemed to work.
I have to note that I'm using the Jenkins Test Drive, and http://localhost:8080/ for my purposes, since I don't actually own a jenkins server. Maybe that has something to do with the above not working.
