In this lesson, we take the authHeaders from our onegraph-auth object and pass them to urql. auth.authHeaders() is a function that returns {authorization: 'Bearer token-guid'}.

We do so by using the fetchOptions key when creating our urql client in src/index.js.

Instructor: [0:00] If we head over to our Network tab and we filter for GraphQL, look at this one, we can see that in our request headers we aren't sending any authentication token. We need to adjust our client to take fetchOptions.

[0:24] FetchOptions will apply whatever options we pass to it to every request that urql makes. We're going to pass headers: auth.authHeaders. We'll save, and we'll go to our browser, and we'll refresh.

[0:52] Inside of our last result, we'll see that we get GitHub repository issue, and discuss GraphQL. If you go to the network tab, and look at the GraphQL request, now we have an authorization Bearer token.
