    I would like to use your api. But I cannot figure out on what kind of headers I must set. I get an response from the server when doing an  get request to  /api/categories. 



        "message": "Failed to authenticate because of bad credentials or an invalid authorization header.",

        "status_code": 401,

        "debug": {

            "line": 113,

            "file": "/opt/akaunting/vendor/dingo/api/src/Auth/Auth.php",

            "class": "Symfony\\Component\\HttpKernel\\Exception\\UnauthorizedHttpException",

            "trace": [

                "#0 /opt/akaunting/vendor/dingo/api/src/Auth/Auth.php(96): Dingo\\Api\\Auth\\Auth->throwUnauthorizedException(Array)",

                "#1 /opt/akaunting/vendor/dingo/api/src/Http/Middleware/Auth.php(52): Dingo\\Api\\Auth\\Auth->authenticate(Array)",

                "#2 /opt/akaunting/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Pipeline/Pipeline.php(148): Dingo\\Api\\Http\\Middleware\\Auth->handle(Object(Dingo\\Api\\Http\\Request), Object(Closure))",


    But what are the keys I must set in the headers. Is it:

    username, password 


    email password. 


    I've tried all of them, but still no response.  Can you send me and curl example if possible?

    Hello Martijn, you should use the email and password. Make sure your REST client is using HTTP Basic authentication.
