Custom RPE data source schema Failing Authentication

 I'm trying to add a specific Restful Data source to link up to RPE. It fails for authentication and I'm wondering how RPE passes credentials to authenticate against the API endpoint provided in <location> tag. Is there an example or more specific docs on how to pass variables? I've done the following: 


1. I added Custom data source to the predefined data sources in the config/RPEpredefineddatasources.xml 

2. I went back to Document template -> add data source from the drop down ->Selected the new data source I created. Selected the Options: Rest, Form AUTH, User & Pass. 

Any recommendation is appreciated.
