HTTP Question

Set a URL in a localhost using username & password

I have a deployed server (https://github.com/nicolsc/slack-sigfox-last-message/blob/master/server.js) and I need to set a URL like the one below to integrate a slack command:

http://{user}:{password}@serverurl.com/{slack route}

My question is, which user name and password do I need? My Pc? The server's? Also, the server URL should be like localhost:400XX.com?

Sorry if the question is not too clear but this is brand new to me, so any kind of help is really appreciated.

EDIT:
I already build a config.local.js file to configure all

.env
entries. When I run
npm start
and browse the localhost I get somthing like this:
Browsed localhost

And when I type the Login/password, I get this response from the npm:

slackbot-sigfox-last-message:debug { host: 'localhost:34005', connection: 'keep-alive', 'cache-control': 'max-age=0', authorization: 'Basic NTdjOWI4MWM5ZTkzYTE2Y2QyODg1ZmJlOjZkYjYxNzMwNTE1NWIzZjE3OTRjMGM2ZDI5MjE3MmY1', 'upgrade-insecure-requests': '1',
'user-agent': 'Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_2) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/52.0.2743.116 Safari/537.36', accept: 'text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,
/;q=0.8', 'accept-encoding': 'gzip, deflate, sdch', 'accept-language': 'es-ES,es;q=0.8,en;q=0.6' } +0ms

slackbot-sigfox-last-message:debug Invalid slack token +2ms

slackbot-sigfox-last-message:debug {} +0ms

slackbot-sigfox-last-message:sigfox Error +1ms

slackbot-sigfox-last-message:sigfox { message: 'Invalid Slack Token' } +0ms

So apparently, the token is what is not right and I've been told it's because of the URL not being set correctly, that's my point.

Answer

Look at the auth.js in the project. Login and passwords are retrieved from environment variables:

process.env.LOGIN
process.env.PASSWORD

There are multiple options to set up environment variables. You can edit package.json and update scripts.start with "start": "LOGIN=user PASSWORD=123 node server.js". Or in Linux you can do: export LOGIN=user and the check variable by: echo $LOGIN

See also here

As stated in documentaion url should be:http://localhost:34005

As you figured out config.local.js is required with content:

module.exports = {
    "LOGIN" : "a",
   "PASSWORD" : "b",
   "SLACK_TOKEN" : 111,
    "SLACK_ROUTE" : "aaa" 
}

You can also try to disable authentication in server.js
