Is there a way to connect to Rest API providers that require session based x-auth-tokens? I am trying to intergrate nimble storage information on my dashboard but I cant gain access without the token and the simple auth page doesnt seem to support a way to generate one.

    • How are the tokens generated? If they're a fixed API/key/string then you should just be able to add it as a header in the simple provider.
    • The tokens are session based, a new token is created everytime I access the API. At the moment I just have a script that keeps the token alive every 5 minutes. At worse I am thinking of writing a management pack that creates the token via power shell every 15 minutes and then makes that token available as a variable for either scripts or to input into the webtile as a perspective.
