Collection level basic authorization not working

App Details:

Postman for Mac
Version 5.5.0
OS X 10.12.6 / x64

Issue Report:

  1. Did you encounter this recently, or has this bug always been there:
    Yes, but this is my first attempt at using the collection level authorization.

  2. Expected behavior:
    The basic auth defined on a collection level works in the collection.

  3. Console logs ( for the Chrome App, View->Toggle Dev Tools for the Mac app):

  4. Screenshots (if applicable)

Step to reproduce the issue:

  1. Create a new collection.
  2. Create a collection level basic authorization
  3. Create a request to send with auth type as ‘Inherit auth from parent’.
  4. send the request, but the request fails due to authorization error.

Thanks for reporting this @rsubramanian. I’m hoping this is something we can troubleshoot remotely–direct message sent :grin:.

Hi - was there a resolution to this? I am seeing exactly the same issue. Basic Auth has been set on my collection, everything else is set to inherit from parent, but when I try to use any of the APIs in that collection, I have to go set them manually for Basic Auth.
