User Authentication for webhook to MailChimp

  • 1.  User Authentication for webhook to MailChimp

    I'm trying to set up a webhook to post email subscriber data to a MailChimp account using the MailChimp API. You need to be able to send a user authentication request but I can't figure out how to do this in QuickBase. I've tried adding a header with the key "Authorization" and value of a username and API key, but it doesn't work. 

    The error I get back is always: 

    {"type":"http://developer.mailchimp.com/documentation/mailchimp/guides/error-glossary/","title"... Key Missing","status":401,"detail":"Your request did not include an API key.","instance":"cf324650-a4c5-420e-80b1-e62703b743fc"}

    I actually figured this out! You can set a key to Authorization and in the value field put Basic and then the base64 encoding of the username:API Key pairing. Like this:

    Authorization: Basic dGVzdA==

    Hi Derek, would you be willing to share the webhook used to create this?
