axios equivalent of curl -u flag

I am trying to implement a frontend in axios for a backend that gives frontend example in curl. What would the axios equivalent of the following be? I am not sure how to represent the -u flag.

curl -X POST -i -u

    The -u or --user flag in curl is used to:

    Specify the user name and password to use for server authentication.

    Following that reasoning the property you're looking for is auth within axios, an example:

    axios('', {
      auth: {
       username: 'john.doe',
       password: 'penny_lane',

    Here's the reference to the axios documentation.
