> QPID-6965 make preemptive authentication pluggable for HTTP management - that is for
requests where all necessary authentication information is included in the HTTP request.
> Where interactive login is required the HTTP management currently always redirects to
an in-built login page which requests a username and password.
> While this solution is suitable for authentication mechanisms which only require a username
and password, and where the broker owns the authentication data (or is trusted to know the
credentials) this is a reasonable solution; however other authentication mechanisms may require
other data - or the authentication mechanism may be external to the broker (and the broker
should not be trusted with the users credentials) - e.g. if using OAUTH2 to authenticate.
> To solve this problem we should make interactive logins pluggable in the same way as
non-interactive preemptive authentication
