API Call issue

8 - Asteroid

Hi Team,


While trying to make an API call using the download tool we are getting this error:: 


HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
WWW-Authenticate: Negotiate
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm=""
Content-Type: text/html;charset=utf-8
Content-Language: en
Content-Length: 93
Date: Fri, 15 Jul 2022 11:59:51 GMT



Can you please let me know what all we should check to make sure we are able to establish connection?

The 401 Unauthorized response is because your API doesn't have the correct authentication credentials.


Several different validation that you might end up need to do are

  • a username / password
  • Bearer authorization
  • Odata authorization

Each one will require a different setup for your download.
