I pass a
header with bearer tokenlike this

const response = await <http://axios.post|axios.post>(`${process.env.GRAPHQL_URL}`, {
		query: print(query),
		variables: variables,
		headers: {
			'Content-Type': 'application/json',
			'Authorization': `Bearer ${process.env.GRAPHQL_TOKEN}`

What kind of token is the GRAPHQL_TOKEN?

it's token of type read, but I think the issue is in my code, I've noticed that postman have support for graphql &amp; I could successfully do the request in there, so trying to figure out a way around with axios

const response = await axios({
		method: 'post',
		url: `${process.env.GRAPHQL_URL}`,
		headers: {
			'Content-Type': 'application/json',
			Authorization: `Bearer ${process.env.GRAPHQL_TOKEN}`
		data: {
			query: print(query),
			variables: variables,
