Hi @pavani.suru,


I was able to find some existing info.



If you are trying to access the rest URL for a controller with no user logged session in the same browser session you would need to provide login details in the login popup as follows:
username: username@accountName
password: password


If you are trying from shell terminal refer doc for more details, Hope that information helps:

Note: the Doc link above is for older Controller versions, I don't know what Controller version you are on, so you *may* need to find the same Docs page for your current Controller version
