Is it possible to use a Bearer Authorization Token for the REST API Source?

Yes, you can use a bearer token for authorization instead of Basic Auth or OAuth 2.0 while configuring your REST API Source.

To authorize Hevo’s connection to your REST API endpoints using a bearer token:

  1. In the Configure your REST API Source page, navigate to the Headers tab in the Set-Up Source section.

    Headers Tab

  2. Add the following headers as key-value pairs:

    Key Value
    Authorization Bearer <your token>
    User-Agent <your agent name>

    For example, Hevo REST API.

    Note: Replace the placeholder values with your own.

    Bearer Token Authorization

    These two key-value pairs are mandatory and must be provided for Hevo to successfully connect to your REST API Source.
