How to set request header to the ajax object for jqGrid

I have the need to set the 'Authorization' request header to the httpXMLRequest. On the grid definition I have tried to set via ajaxGridOptions like the following:

ajaxGridOptions: { Authorization: 'Basic YWRtaW5AZGVmYXVsdC5jb206YWRTwa6=' }


and use the beforeSend event like the following:

beforeSend: function(jqXHR, settings) {
jqXHR.setRequestHeader("Authorization", 'Basic YWRtaW5AZGVmYXVsdC5jb206YWRTwa6=');
}


None of above works for me. What's the right syntax?

Thanks!!

Answer

You can use for example loadBeforeSend event handler of the jqGrid defined as the following:

loadBeforeSend: function(jqXHR) {
    jqXHR.setRequestHeader("Authorization", 'Basic YWRtaW5AZGVmYXVsdC5jb206YWRTwa6=');
}
