Unauthorized Trying to get Token

Recommended Posts


I am mainly a database and desktop application developer, so REST API is new to me.

When using the below C# code I keep getting error 401 - Unauthorized back.  Is the code even remotely close to trying to obtain a valid token?  I added XXXX instead of the actual credentials. 

Do you have a full example like below that will get a token back?

            string myJson = "{'Username': 'DAXXXXXXX','Password':'XXXXXX','AppKey':'K.XXXXXX'}";
            using (var client = new HttpClient())
                var response = await client.PostAsync(
                     new StringContent(myJson, Encoding.UTF8, "application/json"));

Hi Tiger,

I think the main issue with the snippet above is that you are trying to connect to the Pre-Production Environment (PPE) rather than the Live environment. Accounts are not cross compatible across environments - hence the 401 Unauthorized. 

PPE is used internally only, so your account (whether a demo or actual Live account) can only connect to the Live environment.

Try switching the URL to the Live environment: https://ciapi.cityindex.com/tradingapi/

Kind Regards, PM
