Request authorization

COMING SOON!

Some APIs require you to set authorization headers or parameters. Data Fetcher provides an easy way to configure these.

Set up the authentication as described below. When the request runs, Data Fetcher will automatically set the Authorization header to the correct value.

Set up bearer token authentication

  • Click

  • Set type to Bearer Token using the dropdown.

  • Enter the bearer token value in the input. This can be found in the API documentation and is typically an API key or access token.

  • You're done! When your request runs, Data Fetcher will automatically send an Authorization header with a value of Bearer YOUR_BEARER_TOKEN

Set up basic authentication

  • Click

  • Set type to Basic using the dropdown.

  • Enter the API username and password in the relevant inputs. This can be found in the API documentation and is typically a pair of API keys, a fixed username and API key for the password, or just an API key as the username (leave the password blank).

  • You're done! When your request runs, Data Fetcher will automatically send an Authorization header with a value of username:password, base64 encoded.
