Version Mismatch When Making REST Client Call to HCP-AW


Based on that conversation I suggested that the next step be to run a curl command first get that working.


curl https://<your URL>/fss/public/login/oauth -iku "<your pain text username>: <your pain text password>" -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" -H "Accept: application/json" -H "X-HCPAW-FSS-API-VERSION: 2.1.1” -d "grant_type=urn:hds:oauth:negotiate-client"


I've highlighted the portions of this that need to be filled in.

Something I would like you to do with this is type it all in, do not copy and paste because a lot of times the quotation marks do not come over as they should.


If that still doesn't work then please post up your error message.  I can say definitively that for my version of AW, 3.0.3 this call works.  So if this does not get back the token then:

  • We have the wrong URL
  • We have the wrong username/password
  • Quotation marks are not being interpreted correctly
  • Something else is wrong with the version 2.1.1 that you are using.  I would suggest an update for this if possible anyway.
