updating event using REST

OBM 2020.05

I am trying to update event using RestWsUtil.sh but it fails with below error,

Operation requires authentication. Please enter the correct login name and password.

I am using below command from GW server,

RestWsUtil.sh -update /tmp/update.xml -username jessy -password jessy123 -url "https://GW-Server/opr-web/rest/9.10/event_list/331a1812-3246-71eb-006f-0a2b53230000"

where update.xml contains,

<event xmlns="http://www.hp.com/2009/software/opr/data_model">

I even tried with super admin user, but got same error, please help.

Dear All

I did some changes and used new user with super admin rights and now event is getting updated correctly.

However I need to use this in groovy script and I do not want to expose user name and password details, I heard there is an .rc file which can be used for user details, please can you shed me more light on this.
