I am trying to import data from a WFS using OGR2OGR. I am not sure of the syntax I need to pass the username and password of the WFS.

I am using D:\Astun\Tools\OGR2.1.3>ogr2ogr.exe -skipfailures -overwrite -f "ESRI ShapeFile" -a_srs "EPSG:27700" "C:\Users\callen\Desktop\test.shp" WFS:https://data.wdm.co.uk/geoserver/EssexData/ows?version=1.1.0 "User:Pwd" "EssexData:WFS_SCHEME_ANNUAL_WORKS_17_18"

I get an error message saying: ERROR 1: HTTP error code : 401 ERROR 1: Error returned by server : HTTP error code : 401 (0) FAILURE: Unable to open datasource `WFS:https://data.wdm.co.uk/geoserver/EssexData/ows?ve rsion=1.1.0' with the following drivers. -> JP2ECW -> PostgreSQL -> PCIDSK -> JP2OpenJPEG -> PDF -> DB2ODBC -> ESRI Shapefile -> MapInfo File -> UK .NTF -> OGR_SDTS -> S57 -> DGN -> OGR_VRT -> REC -> Memory -> BNA -> CSV -> NAS -> GML -> GPX -> LIBKML -> KML -> GeoJSON -> Interlis 1 -> Interlis 2 -> OGR_GMT -> GPKG -> SQLite -> ODBC -> WAsP -> PGeo -> MSSQLSpatial -> MySQL -> OpenFileGDB -> XPlane -> DXF -> Geoconcept -> GeoRSS -> GPSTrackMaker -> VFK -> PGDUMP -> OSM -> GPSBabel -> SUA -> OpenAir -> OGR_PDS -> WFS -> HTF -> AeronavFAA -> Geomedia -> EDIGEO -> GFT -> SVG -> CouchDB -> Cloudant -> Idrisi -> ARCGEN -> SEGUKOOA -> SEGY -> ODS -> XLSX -> ElasticSearch -> Walk -> Carto -> SXF -> Selafin -> JML -> PLSCENES -> CSW -> VDV -> TIGER -> AVCBin -> AVCE00 -> HTTP

What am I doing wrong?

You can try two things:

place the u/p in the URL like this:

https://user:password@data.wdm.co.uk/geoserver/EssexData/ows?version=1.1.0 

OR

instead of pointing directly to the WFS service you can point to local XML file with the following content:

<OGRWFSDataSource>
    <URL>https://data.wdm.co.uk/geoserver/EssexData/ows</URL>
    <UserPwd>User:Password</UserPwd>
    <HttpAuth>BASIC</HttpAuth>
    <Version>1.1.0</Version>
</OGRWFSDataSource>
