Custom connector to 3rd party source authorization options

I have a custom connector that pulls data from a 3rd party source. The custom connector is called from a canvas app. When I created the custom connector, I set up basic auth so I entered an admin username and password and everything is working fine.

 

When other users load the canvas app initially, they are also prompted to create a connection to the custom connector by providing a username and password. Is there any way to inherit the authorization from the connection I made to the 3rd party source or would each person need to individually authenticate using either their own creds or mine if I share them?

 

ETA I see I can share my connections. Is sharing my connection the custom connector a valid alternative to having each user create their own?

Hi @Cooper01 ,

 

At my knowledge, you could  set the authentication method to ‘no authentication’.

Then you could You can write the username and password in the header or body. (I guess it depends on your api)

 

In addition, you could use flow's 'http' action then use 'response' action to pass the output to canvas.

With this method you will use flow instead of custom connector
