Re: Monitoring REST API with Bearer Token

Hello,

It looks like your API uses OAuth for authorization. You can register Site24x7 as a client on your OAuth provider using this guide: https://www.site24x7.com/help/admin/oauth2.html

Once Site24x7 has been registered as a client, you can select your OAuth provider in the Authentication field in the monitor configuration. Site24x7 will automatically retrieve tokens and submit them in the HTTP request header.

Regards,

Kurian

Where can I register site24*7 as a client at OAuth provider side?

Dear Grace,

    Please this document for registering Site24x7 OAuth client steps. https://www.zoho.com/accounts/protocol/oauth-setup.html

The client name can be Site24x7. I hope this is what you are asking. Let me know if you need further clarifications.
