How to create basic token from username and password, and then put in header

const username = 'username'; 
const password = 'password'; 
const encodedBase64Token = Buffer.from(`${username}:${password}`).toString('base64'); 
const authorization = `Basic ${encodedBase64Token}`;
var request = {
    host: endpoint,
    method: 'POST',
    path: '/_bulk',
    body: body,
    headers: {
        'Content-Type': 'application/json',
        'Host': endpoint,
        'Content-Length': Buffer.byteLength(body),
        'X-Amz-Security-Token': process.env.AWS_SESSION_TOKEN,
        'X-Amz-Date': datetime,
        'Authorization': authorization,
    }
};

Here is what the above code is Doing:
1. We’re creating a new date object and formatting it to the required format.
2. We’re creating a new body object and adding the data we want to send to Elasticsearch.
3. We’re creating a new authorization object and adding the username and password.
4. We’re creating a new request object and adding the host, method, path, body, and headers.

Now that we have our request object, we can send it to Elasticsearch.
