I've had success with most features and macros in the Table Filter and Charts product, including simple API requests where the auth token is in the URL. However, For requests that require a basic auth header, I always get a 401 unauthorized error in the response. I can test my request in Postman without issue. I'm trying to use the "custom" header and using variations of basic mytoken or authorization: basic mytoken... But so far I haven't found the trick to getting this to work. I've whitelisted the source urls too. I'm not sure what I could be missing or if this is a bug.
For me the solution was using my token which typically would reside in the username field of a basic auth header with a colon at the end was to use the token with a colon at the end, convert it to base64 and use that in the custom header option of the macro.
