Can't get Admin API to work

8 - Asteroid

I can get subscription gallery API to work but not the Admin API. I have Admin API enabled.


I have been testing the keys and secrets on api docs page for both one works one does not.


Any ideas?




Hi @bmillrine,


When you are testing the Admin API, are you on the Admin tab of the API Documentation page?

Did you guys ever figure this out?  I copied the Key and Secret directly from Gallery, and I'm on the Admin tab.  And I'm getting denied.  I am using an account with Curator access.  The exact response is below.  Any ideas?
