For API's that use HTTP-Signatures:
( http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-cavage-http-signatures-00 )

... it would be awesome to be able to use that as a authentication mechanism, rather than just Basic:

Specific API that i'd like to use this against is the Joyent Manta storage API:
http://apidocs.joyent.com/manta/api.html

... it'd also be acceptible for my wishlist if there was any functionality to generate headers using an external script callout mechanism of some kind.
Which is to say, if I could generate headers with bash , i could follow this:
http://apidocs.joyent.com/manta/api.html#interacting-with-the-joyent-manta-storage-service-from-the-shell-bash

.... and then happily use POSTMan

We are working on a feature for Jetpacks called pre-request scripting which should allow you to do this soon. :)

@ryancnelson The pre-request script feature in Jetpacks allows you to execute a script before a request is sent, and modify the headers/parameters etc. This should serve your use-case well.
