I'm slightly embarassed to post this, but I'm currently stumped on the issue.
Question:What are the potential issues that would allow Endpoint Explorer to succeed when a test step for the same URI fails?
Basically, while using Endpoint Explorer I get a proper and successful response from an API that requires basic authentication while it fails in a test step. I was using Endpoint Explorer to troubleshoot the authentication issue at the time I succeeded in receiving a proper response message. The last thing I had configured, and I know this may seem odd, was Outgoing and Incoming WS-Security Configurations. I have even configured the Keystore, the Username and Password in the Request Properties, and the Auth Basic (Built-in) Authorization tab.
At the API level, I don't see the the basic Authentication creditials request, so I'm basically trying everything I can think of to authenticate. The keystore configuration was done as an earlier effort to automated the x.509 authentication, but was put on hold in favor of getting tests created over basic auth first.
(see below example URI and the responses I've gathered)
Fail Response using Test Step (redirect options "on"):
What are the potential issues that would allow Endpoint Explorer to succeed when a test step for the same URI fails? If I use the "Create Test" option using Endpoint Explorer I receive the following SoapUI Error pop-up:
Could not get JDBC Connection; nested exception is org.h2.jdbc.JdbcSQLException: General error: "java.lang.NullPointerException" [50000-197]
