The Magic API uses Basic authentication, a simple method for an HTTP user agent to provide a user name and password when making a request.
In basic HTTP authentication, a request contains a header field in the form of Authorization: Basic , where credentials is the Base64 encoding of ID and password joined by a single colon :
All API endpoints require this form of authentication. Failure to correctly authenticate an API request will result in a "401 Unauthorized" response.
Consider the following example.
|Merchant Token||Secret Key|
The Authorization header can then be formed by including the word Basic, followed by the base 64 string of "Demo:test"
|Authorization: Basic ZGVtbzp0ZXN0|
