Basic Question on API Auth

Hi Bubblers!
I want to set up a public API to a backend workflow.
I have enabled authentication but I haven’t seen any documentation on provide the authentication parameters. I tried using username and password as the key with my log in credentials as the values. But that’s not working.
Anyone have a hint on how to set this up?

See this reply from me in this thread for how you might do this. Also, there are docs for authentication to your WF API in the reference.

Alternatively, if you want to use token authentication rather than username & password, take a look at this thread


And this (@edwardbutcher’s reply) is the “correct” approach (also covered in the thread I mentioned, but Edwards’s post is more clear and to the point).
