Powershell Dell iDrac redfish Rest API basic authentication

In one of my blog Configure Dell iDrac9 Rest API with Powershell I showed how use x-auth-token to connect to Dell iDrac, here I instead of token, using basic authentication (use UserName and Password each time to connect to Redfish iDRAC rest api), This is just a example and I will be using explicit credential in Invoke-RestMethod.

As you can see each time it need to create a session using credential and get the information.
