Using "Basic User" Authentication with Jet Reports and Jet Hub

This feature is available in Jet Reports v20.3 and higher.


Jet Reports and Jet Hub support Basic User Authentication.  This enables those organizations who are *not* using Active Directory or Azure Active Directory to continue to add users through the use of a simple username and password method and allow those users to access the Jet Service Tier
