Bearer Token

How to connect to an API with Bearer Token Authentication

Use API keys if you expect developers to build internal applications that don’t need to access more than a single user’s data.

Bearer authentication is an authentication scheme that involves security tokens called bearer tokens. The name “Bearer authentication” can be understood as “give access to the bearer of this token.” The bearer token is a cryptic string, usually generated by the server in response to a login request. The client must send this token in the Authorization header when making requests to protected resources:

Authorization: Bearer {{token}}

Adding an API that uses a bearer token authentication scheme is easy in Jet Admin. Just add it as a global header in the Resource configuration screen and all your API requests that use the resource will have the right auth headers sent over.
