Web Service REST API never prompted for BASIC authentication and immediately defaulted to the error:
Insufficient permission for operation - permission required:Web Service

Examine <Nimsoft>\probes\service\wasp\conf\web.xml.
Look for the presence of any <security-constraint> directives like the following:
      <web-resource-name>Entire Application</web-resource-name>

These directives are not present in the default web.xml.  They are used for HTTPS redirection of UMP requests.

Any UIM Version

To resolve this issue, remove the above <security-constraint> directive from the file referenced above, and instead, place it in the file <Nimsoft>\probes\service\wasp\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\web.xml instead, it will work properly while still allowing UMP requests to be redirected to HTTPS appropriately.
