Enable basic auth in your API Definition (file)

To enable basic auth, the API Definition file needs to be set up to allow basic auth and not a standard access token:

    "name": "Tyk Test API",
    "use_basic_auth": true,

As you can see in the above example, enabling basic auth is as simple as setting a flag for the feature in your API Definition object. Since BA is a standard, Tyk will always look for the credentials as part of the Authorization header.
