WEX FC AppBuilder endpoint to support SSO via Basic Authentication

In App Builder, WLP manage the authentication. And the SSO part is configured in WLP.

App Builder Endpoint doesn't interact with WLP or share any authentication information or any token with WLP. For Endpoint, it manages the request and response itself when you send url to other applications. If the application need authentication, you need to provide authentication information in Endpoint.

But in our case the application need token to manage the authentication, so Endpoint should manage the authentication.

so please include a mechanism where WEX FC AppBuilder endpoint to support SSO via Basic Authentication.


Real-time problem:

We are trying to invoke WEX AC SEARCH API from appbuilder using endpoint, as there is a security enabled on WEX AC, we need to provide basic authentication while invoking WEX AC search api.

This is a critical item which we were unable to fix due to product limitations.
