    Default Authentication with a REST endpoint / session cookie issue

    I've got a three step transformation..

    1) Table input step to extract a JSON body for the second REST call
    2) REST client step to authenticate a session
    3) REST client step to make the intended call using the JSON body from step 1

    Problem seems to be that the session is not preserved between steps. Step 3 is it's own session, and as such returns an HTTP 401 as no user session is found. There is no option for me to perform text authentication in step 3. Step 2 would typically create a cookie with a JSESSION_ID that could then be used for subsequent REST calls.

    Any idea how this form of authentication could be integrated into a PDI transformation?
