Server Rest API 401 error Edited

I am using this documentation:


I am using basic auth (I also tried token based auth since I read that basic auth might be depreciated but it didn't specifically say for the server api)


Authorization: Basic encodedBase64String of username:password


I do not get a normal error message rather a bunch of HTML. This is the beginning:


function printDeprecatedMsg() { if (console && console.warn) { console.warn('DEPRECATED JS - contextPath global variable has been deprecated since 7.4.0. Use `wrm/context-path` module instead.'); } }


I am using for the url:

and doing a GET request in this example


Can someone help me get the server REST API working properly?

hi @Blake Mitchell , welcome on the community. Can you describe how do you access the REST API? From browser, Java, JS code...?

Hello - currently, I am using Postman to do it and will be using Kotlin moving forward after that. Do you have any suggestions


Thank you


Can you share screenshot of the postman configurations?
