API Request (Beta) in Slack - Use bot's auth headers instead of user's

I’m trying to use the API request to call chat.update API to update a message with Zapier bot sent to an existing channel. Now this API only works if the user auth token sent with the request matches the user who actually sent the original message (Zapier bot).

When I try this, it throws a cant_update_message error which tells me the token that Zapier is sending is not allowed to update the message. My guess is this is happening coz I selected my account when setting up this step. Is there a way to replace my account with Zapier’s and send the request using a bot token and not my user token?
