    REST-HTTP-Header is an attribute, not a config setting, so that isn't 
    the right place for it.

update control {
     &REST-HTTP-Header := "x-api-key: 94332cabcdef57456582e5af2bfa123456789"
   }you need to set the attribute, e.g.

       update control {
         &REST-HTTP-Header := "x-api-key: 94332cabcdef57456582e5af2bfa123456789"

    See the notes in raddb/mods-available/rest about that attribute, notably 
    that it will be consumed after the rest call, so if you are making 
    multiple rest calls you'll need to set it each time (using a policy may 
    be the cleanest way to do this).
