Setting up a REST API

This is my first time connecting to new data. I am using a data source called Gemini by countersoft. I'm following this guide to try to set it up:


This is all so new to me so I'm very confused on what to put for various fields.


1.) For step 1, what is the host? Should I just put the website where I put my data on? In my case, it would be

Is this correct? Or should it have api in the address? I'm also not sure if it matters that the scheme is https or http.




2.) For step 2, I chose API key as the authentication type. I know my API key for gemini. However I don't know what the label, name, and location are all supposed to be. I don't know what each one is supposed to do, especially since label and name seem similar. 



3.) Finally, in step 3, I think summary, description, and operation ID are all just my preference on what to put, but I'm not sure what to put under all of the boxes under "import from sample". Should URL be the actual link that leads to my data source table on the gemini site? What should I put for verb and header/body?
