I am building a custom app.

Creating the authentication section, using basic auth option.

Our app uses email instead of username for login, is it possible to

change it so it would ask for an email instead of a username?

@Dimrak you can use API Key authentication as per the docs:

If you need further customization of your login flow or need additional data from users, API key authentication works the same as Basic auth but includes a customizable form where you can request additional authentication data from users.


and from the API Key Auth doc page:

Alternately, since API key authentication allows you to create a custom input form, you can use it to customize username and password-based logins that don’t fit Zapier’s default Basic auth scheme.
