I am using a sandbox environment for aem. I want to use rest API of AEM and while using them on chrome browser I am getting a json response but while using those APIs in postman I am getting status 401 Unauthorized in response and body part of response is blank. In response headers I am getting www-authenticate header as Basic realm="Sling (Development)". I have matched username and password in authorization parameter that is correct.
While making the request from postman you need to select Authorization type as "Basic Auth" and need to pass the username and password. Once you pass these information and make the request it will return 200 response and will no more give 401.
I am still stuck with the same issue. We have tried all the possible ways as suggested in some of the answers but still facing the same issue. Can anyone please help?
I see you are making a GET call while passing the credentials. You need to make the POST call and it will resolve the issue.
The same thing i have mentioned earlier in my above post as well.
Are you using the local login i.e., username or password or using the adobe credentials that was used to login using cloud manager?
This is basic authentication so it will work only if you are using local login credentials for cloud. It works for me from postman. Let me know if it does not work.
I'm experiencing this same issue. I am using the credentials that log me into cloud manager but what is the difference? How can I find out my local credentials?
I know that i set different credentials when i was deploying an exporter but i have tried using those credentials, too and I still get the same 401 error.
