How to connect to REST Client API via PDI

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right place for this I am trying to connect to a Rest API through Pentaho Data Integration. Using API Tester I can connect and get a proper response body quite easily so I know it works, but I can't for the life of me get it to work in Pentaho. I keep getting a "Error finding field [Authorization] in incoming stream" error.


In step 1, I generate a URL row with the proper URL that I need as a string.


In step 2, I use that URL field name within the REST Client.


Below are screenshots of how I have that setup. I need to pass in my Authorization API Token and I am putting it in the Headers section, where it should be, but it doesn't seem to like it there obviously. How do I get this to work where I can successfully pass my headers of "Authorization" and "Accept" and their values into the request header so this works? Do I need to pass them in the URL? If so, how do I do that (what is the format of that?)? I am using an HTTP Method of "GET" so I can't use any parameters.


Thanks for any and all help!!!
