How can I view/read a file from BitBucket using API?

I have a json file stored in BitBucket. My goal is to view the json file as a raw using Postman or invoking an HTTPS request.<repo>/<project>/raw/master/config_test.json?response=json

The URL above works fine when I view it from the browser, but now when I call it from postman. I even tried the but still not working.

I'm getting this error

    "error": {
        "message""Resource not found",
        "detail""There is no API hosted at this URL.\n\nFor information about our API's, please refer to the documentation at:"
I have already tried creating an app password and using Authorization: Bearer <token> but still unsuccessful.

Requesting in your browser works because it is likely using your session cookie to authenticate.

For API authentication, here are some ideas of what to check.

1. Definitely use

2. The app password needs your username still, it is not a bearer token. e.g. you need to use curl -u my-username:my-app-password

This is the API you'll want to use to get a file: as the first "raw" URL you posted isn't an API resource.
