      Description

      The HTTP Client/Post and Rest Client steps will accept the URL, and the HTTP Method from the input fields; however, you cannot pass authentication information (HTTP Login and HTTP Password) from the input fields.

      This is not a problem as long as every one of your URLs accepts the same username and password. However, if you are using these steps against multiple URLs that may accept different usernames and passwords this does not work and becomes much more complicated to develop as you have to run a separate transformation for every URL.
