Embedding API Key in Remote Control Endpoint URLs?

I’m using several instances of endpoint URLs to choose different Layer Sets in my show, and they work great.

Today, though, I wanted to grant remote access via the web in a way that I felt it more prudent to add a password. As soon as I added that password, of course, my endpoint URLs all began failing with:

{"errors":[{"status":"401","title":"Not Authorized","description":"Please check your login data"}]}

I saw the API Key in mimoLive > Preferences > Remote Control, and I tried implementing that in my endpoint URLs to no avail. I tried “?key=[API Key]” and a few other ideas, but nothing did it, nor could I find it documented anywhere.

Does anyone know how to embed the API Key in my remote control Endpoint URLs?

Thanks so much!

Ahh, perfect. Thank you!

Let us know what you’re building!

Sure thing! Right now I have my Keyboard Maestro macros triggering different layer sets while we record Mac Geek Gab, with me “mixing” the video live.

I realized I wasn’t really doing anything with the mixing while I was talking, but was while John F. Braun, my co-host was. So I thought, “why not give John access to Remote Control mimoLive?”

And since I’m opening up that access, I wanted to add a password, but that broke my Keyboard Maestro macros because I need to embed the API Key in them. :slight_smile:
