This chat needs an api authentication, so in my broadcast it need to

this next code is in my main app.js file

window.Echo = new Echo({
    broadcaster: 'pusher',
    key: process.env.MIX_PUSHER_APP_KEY,
    cluster: process.env.MIX_PUSHER_APP_CLUSTER,
    logToConsole: true,
    encrypted: true,
    auth: {
        headers: {
            Authorization: `Bearer TOKEN`
    authEndpoint: "/api/broadcasting/auth",
