Not able to generate OAuth 2.0 Token for Appdynamics REST API call - Grant type value not specified.

Not able to generate OAuth 2.0 Token for Appdynamics REST API call - Grant type value not specified.

I tried the following method to generate OAuth 2 token for API client (with reference to https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/API+Clients#APIClients-using-the-access-token ),

 

https://saas.hostname.com/controller/api/oauth/access_token?grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=...

 

Client Id: is Api client name

client_secret : is the Secret key for the client.

 

I am getting the response like,

 

"Grant type value not specified."

 

Suggest me if a way to get the token.

Hi there,

By the looks of the URL you have posted it looks like you are trying to obtain the token by a GET method. I'm not sure this will work, as the error message suggests that the server is looking for a POST parameter.

Try making a POST call like the one in the documentation.

I have tested in post only.

I'm unfamiliar with the tool you are using, but try entering the values into the Body tab instead of the Query tab.

Leave the Postman as REST Client,

I am getting the 401 Unauthorized and response is empty.

client_id: APICLIENT@Username is it right ?

Hi there,

 

The example has

client_id=<userName>@<accountName>

Try using that.
