Where do I put the access_token when calling a RingOut API?

I am using Password Flow to obtain an access token. This API call works. I can get a token. Now I need to call a RingOut. I have used all the same credentials (user name, password) as the API call to get a token, however I keep getting the response : "Invalid Authorization header":

I suspect this is because I am not including the access token in the URL, header, or params.

If you could give me an answer with respect to Postman, then I could translate that to my "real" app which is built in Lazarus.

Note: The phrase <redacted> is text that may contain sensitive information that has been removed

Note: "callerId" and "from" I assume is the same phone number... which is my dev sandbox account ?

So my question is: Where in Postman do I put the access token in the RingOut API call (URL, header, or params)?

Authorization : Bearer <access_token>

Authorization will be Bearer when using generated access token. You have used Basic which is wrong
