Type Description

An object that specifies the Username and Password parameters.


Use this property to provide authentication credentials to a JSON web service endpoint. Set this property to a HttpBasicAuthenticationInfo object and specify this object's Username and Password properties.

public static JsonDataSource CreateDataSourceWithAuthenticationInCode() {
    // Create a new UriJsonSource object and configure authentication data in it
    var jsonSource = new DevExpress.DataAccess.Json.UriJsonSource();
    jsonSource.Uri = new Uri(@"http://northwind.servicestack.net/customers.json");

    jsonSource.AuthenticationInfo.Username = "user";
    jsonSource.AuthenticationInfo.Password = "pwd";

    // Create JsonDataSource
    var jsonDataSource = new DevExpress.DataAccess.Json.JsonDataSource() {
        JsonSource = jsonSource

You can also specify authentication parameters in the application's connection string and assign the connection name to the JsonDataSource's ConnectionName property.
