  Just put that before every use of the "rest" module.

  Or, you can use policies and over-ride the rest module!  Add a file raddb/policy.d/rest, with contents:

rest.authorize {
	update control {
	   REST-HTTP-Header := "Authorization: Token 0x123245678"


  Then every time you use just "rest" in the "authorize" section, the server will magically run that policy.

  It's very handy for this kind of situation.
