Connexion API with credentials / bearer token

I'm trying to create a client API connection flow. The information I have to create this feed is:

-the root of the API: http s://
-user: "usertest"
-password: "mypassword"
-my endpoint for authentification: http s://

And the information that the token returned during authentication is sent in JSON format.

“BearerToken”: “{tokenValue}”

I have tried several setups and will start from scratch. I'm really new in development and trying to make this connection to my client API properly.

My flow is very simple:

-I have one timestamp for start the flow
-I have a function that sends my credentials in the header
-A post request to the URL:
-for the moment, one debug for see the status.

I have tried a lot of configuration but with no luck. I would really be grateful if someone would make an example of a connection

I remain really available to follow your directions.

Thanks again in advance


Thanks for bringing this up.
Whenever I want to intergrate Node-red in a more complex APIs, I bump into the bearer token problem: very few examples on how to overcome this within node-red.

Since it's on my todo-list to cerate a well documented example for my students, I saved some info that I found online. Didn't have time to dig into it yet though..

This video (from this time) from Thomas Südbröcker is a good start, he is using a flow from his course.

I definetly need to give a look at both :slight_smile:

Please update me if you manage to have a working example.
