I try to realize a PUT api in matlab. I have allready this part which is working: = "e37b35dd-4aca-4ecb-8972-55c3a27a8b11";
data = jsonencode(s,PrettyPrint=true)
% data = jsondecode(s,Prettyprint=true);
body =;
% authorizationField =,password)
contentTypeField ='application/json');
header = [contentTypeField]
method =;
uri = ""
request =,header,body);
resp = send(request,uri)
But now i need to add mu authorization. This is a basic authorization (username and password). How can i put this in the header from the script above?
