Invalid API Key response (Solved)

Rec_OlliE W/ Alumni Posts: 14 Security Scout



I recently got into this new management API and managed  to authenticate just fine and got my authorization token even.


Then when I tried to for example get list of all of our companies I received an error response which had "Invalid_api_key"


Powershell example below:

Invoke-RestMethod -Method GET -Uri "" -Headers $headers -ContentType "application/json"

$headers is a dictionary:


$headers = New-Object "System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary[[String],[String]]"

X-API-Key with correct key obtained from portal

Authorization with bearer + token from authentication response.

$headers.Add("Authorization","Bearer <insert token here>")
$headers.Add("X-API-Key","<insert apikey here>")


and the query returned:

Invoke-RestMethod : {"errors":[{"error":"invalid_api_key"}]}

 I tried basically the same code with c# and got 400 bad request.


Something I'm doing wrong here or?


EDIT: I was using a account that had full read permissions but for some reason thats not enough.

I used my personal account in query and it worked fine.

    Alright! Seems fair. We actually changed the user to full rights as it feels more proper than using my own account.
    Good that it's being fixed!
