Hello friends,

I'm trying to address a WEB service with an httpclient-object and the get-method, but I always get the status message 401.

I'm using the following code:

HttpClient lnv_HttpClient
lnv_HttpClient = Create HttpClient
string ls_uer, ls_token, ls_string
integer li_status, li_req
ls_user = 'user_x'
ls_token = 'long_given_token_x'

lnv_HttpClient.SetRequestHeader("Host", "pp.xx.qwertz.com")

li_req = lnv_HttpClient.SetRequestHeader('qwertz-ConsumerId', ls_user)

li_req = lnv_HttpClient.SetRequestHeader('qwertz-ConsumerToken', ls_token)

li_req = lnv_HttpClient.SendRequest('GET', 'https://pp.xx.qwertz.com/pp/employeeGet')

if li_req = 1 then
    li_status = lnv_HttpClient.GetResponseStatusCode()

    if li_status = 200 then
    end if

end if

the same procedure from the same Client-PC works fine when i'am using the extern API-Tool "Postman"

So, what i'am doing wrong?

Hello together,

the probelm was:

ls_user = 'user_x'
ls_token = 'long_given_token_x'

the string "long_given_x" contained a spezial character ~

this ~ did not appear in the var: ls_token

if you assign a text to a string var in Power Script, you must replace ~ with ~~

Hi Andreas,

are you sure the headers you set are same as in PostMan?

As you probably know, 401 means the request lacks valid auth credentials for the requested resource.

If request is ok from Postman, please verify there is no missing header and they are all spelled correctly.


Addition check, I'd try to export to C# the Postman request (it's a handy built-in feature) and run it from SnapDevelop.
