I am using the supplied example to test the API with the PHP library:
require_once 'csrest_general.php'; $auth = array('api_key' => 'your API key'); $wrap = new CS_REST_General($auth); $result = $wrap->get_clients(); var_dump($result->response);
However, the response I get is;
array( 'Code' => 50, 'Message' => 'Must supply a valid HTTP Basic Authorization header', )
I have also tried using the supplied example for adding subscribers, with the same result.
How do I set the Basic Auth header? Given the docs say that Basic Auth simply requires the API key as the username and a blank password, I assumed the library would handle that if I just give it an API key, as the samples do.
Hi, i answered this over on Github, but for completion i'll paste my response here too:
You need to ensure that in this line you correctly replace 'your API key' with the actual ApiKey from your account:
$auth = array('api_key' => 'your API key');
If you have, and it's still not working, it's likely that instead of the ApiKey you're using a ListID or ClientID. The ApiKey is obtained by clicking on the "Account Settings" link when you're logged into your account.
If you're still having troubles you'll need to log a support request so we can look at your individual case.
Yep, it's definitely the account key from Account Settings (top bar) > Show API key.
I'll open a support request as you suggest.
