Is mySecrtetCodeGoesHere an oauth 2.0 token or a code?

Normally you use your secret code and credentials to exchange for an OAuth
2.0 token.

Cross-posted to HTTPAPI and WEB400

I just coded up a basic Zoom API request - this is the basic HTTPAPI code:

url = '' +
%EditC(webinarId: 'X') +

headerVars.contentType = 'application/json';

headerVars.authorization = 'Bearer mySecrtetCodeGoesHere';

: %paddr(addSpecialHeaders)
: %addr(headerVars) );

rc = http_get( url: '/tmp/result.txt' );
if rc <> 1;

Dcl-Proc addSpecialHeaders;
Dcl-Pi *N;
headersToAdd Varchar(32767);
vars likeds(headerVars) const;

Dcl-C CRLF x'0d25';

headersToAdd = 'content-type: ' + vars.contentType + CRLF
+ 'authorization: ' + vars.authorization + CRLF;

This gives me a "401 - This page requires a user-id & password" error

If I copy/paste the credentials and URL into Insomnia and test it - it
works. The user Id stuff is in the "secret key" bit.

Since I copied and pasted this stuff into insomnia from the RPG stuff I
can only assume I missed a step somewhere. But where?
