Authentication in HTTP rules

Since introducing the rule engine almost 3 years ago, a lot of new features have been added and built on top of rules - one being the App Store. While it's possible to hide, ignore and mail errors using rules, most of you use rules to integrate with external systems like Slack and HipChat.

Having to integrate with an external API pretty much always require some sort of authentication. Rules haven't really supported this in a good and consistent way. Until now! We just implemented support for bearer tokens (OAuth 2) and with the basic authentication support added a month ago, we support most scenarios needed to integrate with another system providing a public REST API.
