PasswordCredential

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The interface of the Credential Management API provides information about a username/password pair. In supporting browsers an instance of this class may be passed in the credential member of the init object for global fetch.

Constructor

PasswordCredential()
Creates a new PasswordCredential object.

Properties

Inherits properties from its ancestor, Credential.

PasswordCredential.additionalData 
One of a FormData instance, a URLSearchParams instance, or null. The data in the objects will be added to the request body and sent to the remote endpoint with the credentials.
PasswordCredential.iconURL Read only
A USVString containing a URL pointing to an image for an icon. This image is intended for display in a credential chooser. The URL must be accessible without authentication.
PasswordCredential.idName 
A USVString containing the name that will be used for the ID field when submitting the current object to a remote endpoint via fetch. This property defaults to 'username', but may be overridden to match whatever the backend service expects.
