    CloseableHttpClient http = HttpClientBuilder.create().build();
    String encoding = Base64.getEncoder().encodeToString((ACCESS_TOKEN).getBytes("ASCII"));

    get.setHeader("Authorization", "Basic " + encoding);

  • Hi,

    This forum is for Visual Studio IDE, your issue is more about Working with Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) and Java , however  VSTS(Visual Studio Team Service) community has been moved from MSDN to Developer Community and Stack Overflow, I suggest you post the issue there to get better support.

    Thanks for your understanding.
