I want to use Inbox API Access (with username and password).
I have created it under Access & Security tab
Now can you tell me how to use it for authentication ?
Thanks for asking! If you have configured “basic auth” for your inbox, you must make sure that whichever application you’re using to send data to OpenFn makes use of basic auth in their HTTP post request. Basic Auth in curl, for example, looks like this:
curl -u myusername:mypassword https://www.openfn.org/inbox/your-inbox-uuid
Here is what a basic auth header looks like when transmitted using HTTP: Authorization: Basic QWxhZGRpbjpPcGVuU2VzYW1l
And just to make sure we’re on the same page, I have pasted the Inbox Auth setup screen below. Is this where you configured your authentication option?
