Basic Authentication does not work with JSONP

When sending Basic Authentication credentials with an jQuery AJAX request like so:


type: 'GET', url: 'http://domain.com', beforeSend : function(xhr) {

var credentials = btoa(username + ':' + password); xhr.setRequestHeader("Authorization", "Basic " + credentials);

}, dataType: 'jsonp', success: function(data) {




It doesn't work because the dataType is JSONP. Changing the dataType to JSON works.

However if you need to use JSONP for CORS, you have to do the following workaround:


type: 'GET', url: 'http://username:password@domain.com', dataType: 'jsonp', success: function(data) {
