Custom Connector - 403 / Forbidden

Hello everyone,

 

so I'm kinda stuck with this problem.

I've tried creating a custom connector to an API (IBM Connections Cloud to be precise) and wanted to (for testing-purposes) check if I can GET a File or File Metadata.

It uses Basic Authentication. Entered Credentials are correct.

 

Using Postman:

GET - [Link to the file] - Basic Authentication - Correct credentials

 

Testing either Action and Trigger while creating Custom Connector:

GET - [same link to file] - Basic Authentication - Correct credentials entered as well

 

Anyone knows why I'm getting the 403 even though the Request should be the same?

 

Thanks!

 

EDIT: I only get the 403 in Postman / cURL when I omit my Password.

Hi @v-yuazh-msft,

 

i know what the 403 error is. The problem is, that I'm passing the correct credentials under Basic authentication - But these credentials don't get passed on when making a request.
