Native C# Client for Web Sockets

Hi all!

I need to connect via WebSockets to an on-prem Solace Broker from my native app (UWP written in C#).

I also need to add I the Connect() HTTP request a specific HTTP Header "Authorization" with a Bearer token that I generate in the app.

I cannot see a way to configure the Solace C# SDK to perform such a custom activity, so first of all, do you know any way to do this with the Solace SDK?

Alternatively, I could write a simple native WebSocket without using the Solace SDK, but I need the parameters to connect.

E.g. I tried using a very simple approach (using a NuGet package like this:

using WebSocketSharp;
WebSocket ws = new WebSocket("wss://");  
ws.SetCredentials("solace-cloud-client", "<myPsw>", true); 

but it doesn't work...

What am I missing?

    Why do you have a need to set the bearer token? The web-socket connection is between your client and the broker and the broker has no requirement for a bearer token? You authenticate with the broker via usename/password (as in your websocket only sample), or with kerberos token, or with x.509 client certificate. The latest APIs and broker also support OAUTH2.0. In all of these case the authentication parameters can be supplied as properties on session create.
