I am trying to get an access token programatically using this doc. But I am getting 403. 


I followed the doc and created a user and got client_id and secret. But i am keep getting 403. 


Any help will be great. Thank you

Hi @jumpinglion,

Do those credentials work for you in the interactive API docs? We can see the API docs by going to admin → api → View API Docs. 

Also, what method are you using (curl, postman, etc)?

A common issue is people do not use a post request for that endpoint or they use the wrong port. 



Thank you. The issue was the port. Cheers
