I am working on the the securing the http routes created with akka-http 
using the authentication token, which is passed as header and on 
authenticated the route is rejected or accepted .

val routes: Route = corsHandler(route)

  lazy val route: Route =
    pathPrefix(HttpConstants.PathPerfix / HttpConstants.Version) {
      optionalHeaderValueByName("token") {
        case Some(userId) =>
          authAPI.authenticate(userId) {
            case Some("Authenticated") =>
              JobRouter.route ~
            case Some("Rejected") =>
              complete(StatusCodes.custom(401, "Wrong Password Provided"))
        case None => complete(StatusCodes.custom(403, "token header not 

Now the above code works fine the problem arises when I am trying to write 
the test cases for the same

"Create user Api" should {
    "Posting to /user should create template" in {
      val entity = HttpEntity(MediaTypes.`application/json`, json.toString())
      Post(Paths.get("/", HttpConstants.CreateUser).toString, entity) ~>
      RawHeader("token","aDmineyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbG") ~>
        httpService.JobRouter.route ~> check {
          status.isSuccess() shouldEqual true

Now while I pass the token as header all I get is Error during processing 
of request: 'null'. Completing with 500 Internal Server Error response. I 
even tried using addHeader option of akka but still the issue remains.
