Pass Bearer Token Authentication with Web Report Designer API Requests
Currently, the auth token is not yet passed from the client to the service. For that reason, it would be nice if the bearer token can be passed with the Web Report Designer API Requests.

Hi Lukas,

Until this gets implemented, I wanted to provide your work around for anyone else that may come across the same issue as it has been appearing more often.

The following code will add the authentication header to each request using the jQuery.ajaxPrefilter() event. 

jQuery.ajaxPrefilter(function (options, originalOptions, jqXHR) {
			jqXHR.setRequestHeader('Authorization', 'Bearer ' + authData.token);

		// overload the fetch method
		const fetchOverride = window.fetch;
		window.fetch = function (url, args) {
			// Get the parameter in arguments
			if (!args) {
				args = {
					headers: {
						Authorization: 'Bearer ' + authData.token
			} else if (!args.headers) {
				args.headers = {
					Authorization: 'Bearer ' + authData.token
			} else {
				args.headers.Authorization = 'Bearer ' + authData.token;

			// Intercept the parameter here
			return fetchOverride(url, args);

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to implement this.
