Querying With Postman

I’m trying to query the FlightAware API with Postman, however, I’m just getting a “Authentication Required” response in return. I’ve tried using the Authorization settings with Basic Auth to no avail. I’ve tried different headers and params as well, but no luck.

What steps do I need to follow to query the FlightAware API with Postman?

Basic Auth should be correct. Be sure that the “Authorization” header being sent in the request is your username and FlightXML API key (do not supply your website password).

What is the exact header key name?

I did the same and has no luck…

The exact header is “Authorization”. This is the standard HTTP Basic Auth header and format. Basic access authentication - Wikipedia
