REST Basic Authentication issue

Hi All,

We are hosting a REST service and have used BASIC authentication in service package. We have a specific service operator in Pega to be used for this authentication. While trying to test this REST service from SOAP ui, if I try the userid and password as embedded in Service URL(eg. http://Pega7:8080/prweb/PRRestService/ADVPurchasingWorkPurchaseRequest/PurchaseRequest/GetPurchaseRequest/PR-21?UserIdentifier=Service@ADV&Password=cnVsZXM= ) , authentication is working and am able to get the response.

But if we try to use the user id and password in header(as mentioned in REST tutorial in pega academy: "If the service package is configured to require authentication the request must include username and password of an Operator ID. The external system can send these either in the header, or appended to the URL query string as name/value pairs for the parameters UserIdentifier and Password.") in SOAP ui, are getting a response as "Credentials not found". Please refer screen shot as well.

Please advise.
