Proxying requests based on $http_authorization (API Key)

Hello.

We are looking to proxy requests to different backends using upstream based on http basic auth. I.E. the API key of the request. I am thinking I need to first get the API key from the raw http request ($http_authorization). Then do a lookup in redis for the backend to forward too.

We are already using OpenResty. Can we do this natively, or even better yet, are there 3rd party modules we can utilize to help with this? Is using lua required, or can we utilize standard nginx directives?

Thanks for the help, and insights.
