Persisting variables while using monitors in a workspace

Hi all,

I am trying to find the best way to work with monitors that need to update/persist varialbes between the requests.

I am using collection variables and how I understand they work with a monitor is that only initial values can be used and current values are private to the monitor’s session.

Using postman api calls I can update/persist the variables between the requests and for future requests, however in order to make these postman api calls I need to use an x-api-key and I’m not sure how to use this in a monitor without exposing the x-api-key to the team.
