Parameters Authentication Settings

Parameters Authentication Settings​

Parameter authentication settings are essential when an API request requires authentication using a key-value pair in the query parameters or headers. This is typically done using parameters such as api_key, version, subdomain, etc. to authenticate the request.

To configure the parameter authentication settings, you need to consider the following options:
  • Label Name: It is used to specify the label name for the parameter field.
  • Static Dropdown (Optional): This option allows you to create a dropdown parameter field where users can choose a specific option from a list.
  • Make this Field Required: If the parameter field is required for every request, you can enable this option to ensure that users are always required to pass the parameter value.
  • Make this Field Hidden: If you don't want the parameter field to be displayed while making a connection, you can enable this option to hide it.
  • Default Value: This option allows you to pass a default field or require users to pass their own parameter value. For instance, you can set a default value for the subdomain of a URL.
  • Description: This option allows you to provide a description about the parameter field, which can help users understand its purpose and how to use it effectively.
By configuring these parameter authentication settings, you can ensure that your API requests are properly authenticated, and the required parameters are always included in the request.

Here are some examples of how parameter field settings can be used:
  • Parameter field settings with default value:
    This example demonstrates how to specify a default value for a parameter field. Users can use this default value or specify their own value for the parameter.
