User/pass dialog for basic-auth

I have successfully added an API and configured it to use basic-auth.
However to access the upstream_url I need to pass user and pass in the URL.
It’s not a very secure practice since the browser will store the pass in history.

does the Enterprise edition have a dialogue asking for those input for basic-auth?

Or how people use to deal with this?

Hi!

Kong CE and EE offer several different options for more advanced authentication: https://konghq.com/plugins/#authentication

For example, our Quick Start guide includes an example of using key-auth: https://getkong.org/docs/0.11.x/getting-started/enabling-plugins/
