Implementing Header-Based Authentication via Parameter-Based Authentication

Not open for further replies.
In this article, we have outlined a scenario where a user needs to configure parameter-based authentication instead of header-based authentication.

The explanation includes a step-by-step guide on how to implement the parameter-based authentication instead of header-based authentication.

For example, here we are taking the RSS.app application, which is using the above-mentioned authentication.
  • Select the Parameters option as an Auth Type, if the API request authenticates using a key-value pair in the headers. In this option, you need to specify the header key while creating each action event of your application.


  • After providing the necessary details and choosing the correct authentication type, now we have to create an action event inside our application and navigate to "Action Event API Configuration".

  • To configure the action event, select the method as POST and enter the API endpoint URL in the API endpoint field. Ensure you select "Set Body/Query/Path Parameters" and "HTTP Headers".

  • Click on the gear icon of the HTTP Headers and set the default value similar to the value we've set on our application while choosing the authentication.

  • To run this action event in your workflow. Choose the action event and create a connection.
  • To create a new connection we need to enter the API Key and API Secret. The RSS.app application passes the API Key and API Secret into Headers.

  • After creating the connection, capture the required response.

Successful Setup:
By following the above steps, you can successfully configure parameter-based authentication instead of header-based authentication.
