Not able to access REST API at ESRF

Hi Tango dancers! and Happy 2020!

I was recently trying the REST API and I found in the documentation:
a mention about the ESRF REST API. Is it supposed to work?

I'm trying:

curl -u "tango-cs:tango"

and I get HTTP Status 401 – Unauthorized

<!doctype html><html lang="en"><head><title>HTTP Status 401 – Unauthorized</title><style type="text/css">h1 {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:white;background-color:#525D76;font-size:22px;} h2 {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:white;background-color:#525D76;font-size:16px;} h3 {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:white;background-color:#525D76;font-size:14px;} body {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:black;background-color:white;} b {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:white;background-color:#525D76;} p {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;background:white;color:black;font-size:12px;} a {color:black;} {color:black;} .line {height:1px;background-color:#525D76;border:none;}</style></head><body><h1>HTTP Status 401 – Unauthorized</h1><hr class="line" /><p><b>Type</b> Status Report</p><p><b>Description</b> The request has not been applied because it lacks valid authentication credentials for the target resource.</p><hr class="line" /><h3>Apache Tomcat/9.0.14</h3></body></html>

While when testing it on my REST server instance I get:

curl -u "tango-cs:tango" http://localhost:10001/tango/rest

Hi Zibi,

Since Jan'19 ESRF REST is integrated with ESRF LDAP. You need to provide ESRF LDAP credentials to access REST.

Your local installation uses plain authentication hence built-in credentials (tango-cs|tango) work.

More on authentication can be found here:

Documentation needs to be updated indeed.
