Problem adding a SECURED OGC WMS to map

Hey guys,

we would like to add a secured OGC WMS to a map of the ArcGIS API for JavaScrip. 

Regarding to "Access secure resources" ( it is possible to access a WMS with "Network Credentials".

But unfortunately when we add a secured WMS to the map no popup from the browser appears:

const layer = new WMSLayer({
url: url_of_wms,
sublayers: [
name: "name_of_layer"

const map = new Map({
basemap: {
baseLayers: [layer]


But when we do a request a pup is showing up (username, password):

esriRequest(url_of_wms, {
withCredentials: true
}).then(function (response) {


But I still get an authorization error (401) while adding the WMS to the map, because it doesn't add an authentication header to the request.


So, here is our question: How can we add a secured OGC WMS to the map?

Thanks :)
