{ "statusCode": 401,

"data": { "authorized": false, "valid": true, "errors": [], "successful": false },

"message":"com.atlassian.confluence.api.service.exceptions.AuthenticationRequiredException: Authentication is required"

}

{

method: 'GET',
url: 'https://<domain>.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/space',

Accept: 'application/json',
'Content-Type': 'application/json',

Hi @kuldeep kushwaha 

In the authorization section, you need to be using both the token and the user e-mail address that the token was created with. That seems to be missing in what you've given above. You need to pass in a 64 bit encoded version of the e-mail / token pair.

Hi @Warren 

I am trying to make an API call using OAuth token and we encode email/API-token in basic authentication.


https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/jira-rest-api-basic-authentication/


As you said tried passing 64 bit encoded version of the e-mail / OAuth token in header got the following response.


Status: 403 Forbidden.
{ "error": "Failed to parse Connect Session Auth Token"}
