      As a developer, I want to use values stored in the Password Manager in my REST calls, so that I can connect to APIs but not expose my API keys or secrets.

      Acceptance criteria

      • I can use values from the password manager 
      • In a header, parameter, path or body of REST call

      Context

      Many API's expect a text API key (sometimes called a secret or an API token) to be provided somewhere in the REST call. 

      For example: 
      http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/forecast?q=London,us&APPID=11c86e6e92231833a10604185a855418

      Notes

      This is a follow to the work done in MGNLRESTCL-44, that ticket allows developer to access values from password manager - but only in the specific cases of basic and bearer based authentication.
