To pass additional headers in the request, you can use the function page.setExtraHTTPHeaders.

Quote from the docs linked above:

The extra HTTP headers will be sent with every request the page initiates.

Example:

page.setExtraHTTPHeaders({
    'Token': '...', 
});

All following requests will then have the additional header Token with the set value.
