I was trying to authenticate rest api call with Bearer token. It gets successful via Curl or from Swagger UI, however when I call it from from pentaho rest client, it returns:- {"error":"unauthorized","error_description":"Full authentication is required to access this resource"}.


Any idea if PDI 8.3 supports REST authentication Bearer method? I was reading product document at and found that The Pentaho Server supports Basic Authentication as defined in RFC 2617.


Any help will be much appreciated.

I have certainly used a bearer token in PDI before (for typeform API) so I know it does work


I used a Data Grid step to inject it into the REST step but it can be done several different ways
