Add WMS requiring authentication to AGOL

Idea created by leland.snyder on Jun 10, 2014

    This idea has been merged with Secure WMS Support for ArcGIS Online.

    In ArcGIS Desktop, one can add a WMS service where authentication is required.  i.e. Someone provides you a secure WMS and provides you a username and password.  ArcGIS Online does not offer the same support for WMS services.  If it requires authentication, there is no prompt for credentials like when adding a secure ArcGIS Server map service. I do understand WMS authentication is most likely on the web tier, not the service itself, but perhaps there is a way to check for this.


    Would be nice to have same type of authentication option for WMS.
