Connecting to an API with Username and Password in Power Query

Gilbert Quevauvilliers has a challenge:

In the blog post I am going to show you the steps that I took to get data from the XE.COM API which uses a username and password to log into the API

You might be thinking that I could put in the username and password when I used the Web Connector.

My challenge is that I wanted to create a function that I could pass through multiple currencies to the API. And in order to do that I wanted to store the details within the function.

Read on to see how Gilbert solves this.
