FAILURE_BAD_CREDENTIAL when executing curl command for authentication token
I'm following the Anaplan API and trying to create an authentication token. I'm using the command with my username and password included:
curl -X POST --user YourUser.@anaplan.com:YourPassword https://auth.anaplan.com/token/authenticate
However, when I run it I get an error message FAILURE_BAD_CREDENTIAL. I'm using the correct credentials though. Not sure how to resolve this issue. Password has no special characters in it and I'm not using SSO to login.
no, that's a JSON object for requests via http call
I don't know curl but should be something like this
curl -X POST --user Authorization:base64encoded([email protected]:'password') https://auth.anaplan.com/token/authenticate
curl --user handles base64-encoding the user:password for basic authentication. If you wanted to do it yourself you would directly provide an Authorization header using -H "Authorization: Basic xxxxxx" where xxxxxx is the base64-encoded username:password, but that shouldn't be necessary. The only thing that could trip it up is a colon in the username.
If you pass the -v flag to curl you will get more useful output to standard error. I can't see anything obviously wrong with the command though. What does the response look like?1
you need to encore in base64 and prepend with "Authorization: "
So the command should be something like: "Authorization: "
} curl -X POST --user [email protected]:'password' https://auth.anaplan.com/token/authenticate0
