When trying to import an authentication-protected wsdl (some thing like we get an error reponse:

Error loading []: org.apache.xmlbeans.XmlException: Server returned HTTP response code: 401 for URL:

However, there was an authentication window popping up in earlier windows. We have to downgrade again

    What was the previous version of SoapUI Pro you were using in which you received a pop up window to authenticate? Can you show a screen shot of this authentication window?

  • This is what I can see from not a very older version (4.6.3 free)

    I can see this using soapui pro 4.6.4
  • sorry I meant I can NOT see this window in 4.6.4 pro
  • How can I do it when I'm not even able to import the wsdl?

    Hi again!

    You are absolutely right, my previous post is obviously not applicable in your situation, sorry for that.
    We've verified that this indeed a bug in the latest version of SoapUI and have registered an issue for it in our internal bug tracker (SOAP-1331).

    We'll let you know as soon as we have more information about this.

       I think this is broken again in 5.4.0. I'm not getting prompted for credentials.

        Try to inspect HTTP headers your API-server responds with.


        According to MDN schema - - server must send WWW-Authenticate header which tells client how exactly to authorize.


        In my case when I've been added following header: 


        WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="My super api", charset="UTF-8"


        And Soap UI shows me credentials popup. Tested at v5.4.0.
