We have an application of libwebsockets where we are passing custom headers, for example a header might include:

POST /SomeEndpoint HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost:3000
api_key: Fv-xkmMYQ0OdEQH-TPbMUupFYuFpYTKl45r1tmpR
Content-Type: application/json
Cache-Control: no-cache
Postman-Token: ae1e83a7-cd6a-f02c-d830-3f8c11f75e4b


What is the proper way to access the custom header elements?  The lws_hdr_copy(...) method requiring predefined tokens only works for predefined 'standard' headers.

Thank you,

Mike M.
