POST request to Confluence returns 403 Error

I'm trying to create a page from powershell using the following command -

$json = "{""type"": ""page"",""title"": ""My test page 2"",""space"": {""key"": ""TST""},""body"": {""storage"": {""value"": ""Another testing"",""representation"": ""storage""}}}"

$res = Invoke-RestMethod -Method Post -Body $json -Headers @{Authorization = "Basic xxxxxxx"} -ContentType 'application/json'

However, I'm getting 403 Error. I can create page using menu options with no problem, so clearly I have necessary authority. I can also make GET request with no problem. I appreciate if anyone could point out my mistake.

Do you have a space with the key "TST"?

Nope, my stupid mistake. I fixed that and now it works. Thanks!!
