To connect to a stream, send a WebSocket handshake request to the returned URL with the correct authorization header. The following is an example using HTTP header to pass secret key:

curl -k -i -N -H "Connection: Upgrade" -H "Authorization: secret {secret key}" -H 
"Upgrade: websocket" -H "Host: tst19001.uda.io/listener/v1/streamer" -H
"Origin: tst19001.uda.io/listener/v1/streamer" https://tst19001.uda.io/listener/v1/streamer/bdbfeb4a-7cf1-4da8-aba9-7594d56026d0

The following is an example using URI query parameter to pass secret key:

curl -i -N -H "Connection: Upgrade" -H "Upgrade: websocket" -H "Host: tst19001.uda.io/listener/v1/streamer" -H "Origin: tst19001.uda.io/listener/v1/streamer" https://tst19001.uda.io/listener/v1/streamer/bdbfeb4a-7cf1-4da8-aba9-7594d56026d0?secret={secret key}

The following is an example wss protocol:

wss://listener-streamer-services-myenv.example.com/v1/streamer/e5925443-ec1c-4fd4-ada8-8d8c6c603cee?secret={secret key}
