Custom Headers

This feature is available on Beefree SDK Superpowers plan and above. If you're on the Core or Essentials plan, upgrade a development application for free to try this and other Superpowers-level features.

When to use it

This feature allows the host application to pass custom headers when it triggers a call to their services. The custom headers are added to FSP calls and to Custom Rows calls.

For example, this could be useful for the security teams of , which would like to pass a JWT (JSON Web Token) when the user, through the file manager, triggers a call to their Custom File System Provider API.

It may be also be used to protect application or customer-hosted content delivered to the editor, such as custom rows or other host app-specific content. The extra token helps the host application to apply an authentication layer to the contacted endpoints.

How it works

To activate this feature, the host application must add a specific element to the Configuration object:

customHeaders: [
        name: 'Authorization',
        value: 'Bearer ',

Please note that all custom headers will be prefixed with “X-BEE-“ identifier. For instance, in the example above, the header will be sent to the host app as X-BEE-Authorization.

Please note that custom headers must be whitelisted by our team before using them. Please open a support ticket via the Beefree SDK Console if you’re planning to use this feature.
