How to use custom authentication request in next request



I am trying to create a custom connector for a third party API that uses a custom authentication method.

It basically needs two calls, one for getting an accesstoken, and one for getting the data (using the accesstoken). I don't know how I can implement this two-step flow in a custom connector.


The first call is: 

curl --location --request POST '' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
--data-urlencode '' \
--data-urlencode 'password=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'

which returns a JSON:

    "data": {
        "serverTime": "xxxxx",
        "accessToken": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
        "accessTokenExpiration": "xxxxxx",
        "refreshToken": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
        "refreshTokenExpiration": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
        "authType": "user"


the second call is:

curl --location --request GET '' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer myaccesstokenfrompreviousrequest'


I have no idea how to setup this "custom" authentication model in the custom connector so I can call the "data" request so that it uses the other "authentication" request...

Are there any samples or specific tutorials available somewhere that explain this?
