Redirect authorization in HTTP Request Action

Our HTTP Request Action follows redirects – i.e. when an API you request sends you to another URL with a 3XX response. However, for best-practice security reasons, we don’t forward the Authorization header if the hostname changes in the redirect.

Now, you can opt-in to forwarding the header using our new ‘redirect authorization’ option. This will help in cases where APIs use and redirect to multiple hostnames, requiring authorization to be passed along.
