HTTP basic authentication uses a user name and password to authenticate a service client to a secure endpoint. The basic authentication is encoded in the HTTP request that carries the SOAP message. ... You can use this configuration when a web service is a client to another web service.

When users send a request for a web service, they are authenticated according to the credential type that is configured for Business Central Server. To access a web service, users must provide valid credentials for the credential type being used. If Business Central is configured for Windows credential type, then users are automatically authenticated against the Windows account that their computer is running under, and they are not prompted for their credentials. For other credential types, users are prompted to enter a user name and password.
