    I’am using http binding and want to make authentication to external web page which has some kind of api. Authentication is done via web form and I need to pass username and password, hot to make this happen ?
    form fields looks like:

                        <input type="text" class="form-control input-material" name="_username" id="username" novalidate="novalidate" placeholder="+" value="+">
                    <div class="form-group">
                        <input type="password" class="form-control input-material" name="_password" id="password" novalidate="novalidate" placeholder="Password">

You might be able to do it with the http binding, but you’d probably find it easier to use the http action.

Any example?

Have you tried the search-function?

Yes, I saw this. Problem is that for login session HTTPOnly flag is used in cookie…
