Having trouble with get date from web api with personal key

I'm trying to connect to Freckle (time reporting application) using the web api and a personal key authentication.

 

When i try to get the data and connect i get to the following window:

I kept getting an error saying "A web api key can only be specified when a web api key name is provided", so i tried to make sense of a tutorial, but failed badly. What i think i understand is that i need to add that "ContentType" header parameter, but from that point, i have no idea what i'm doing.

 

I've generated a personal key from the web application, but if someone could help i'd really appreciate it.

 

Many thanks.

@Nickodemus,

You can specify an API key name in the hearers area of Web.Contents using Advanced Editor. You can review the example in this blog: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt260892.aspx .


There is also a similar thread for your reference.
