How Do I Connect to Data Using My API Key for Authorization in the Report Engine for RESTful?

This article explains the process of changing your Access Provider to Request Header in the Report Engine for RESTful. This new feature allows better security of your API key since you no longer need to specify the key a URL (which can be cached and shared).

To add a new API data source with Request Header Authorization, copy and paste the following code into your v2/document/POST method . Be sure to insert your API token, key, and URL where instructed.

<Datasources>
	<Datasource>
    	<Type>json</Type>
        <Name>Test</Name>
        <ConnectionString>AccessProvider=RequestHeader;HKey=**Insert API Token Here**;Password=**Insert API Key Here**;Url=**Insert API URL Here**</ConnectionString>
    </Datasource>
</Datasources>
