401 Unauthorized response when GET-ing groups in Postman

Hi,


I am struggling to be able to do the first call to the API, ie GET /groups - I keep getting a 401 error, even though I believe I followed the steps properly (I have set api-key and api-secret as environment variables in Postman).


here's the Postman log (I've replaced the values for keyId and signature):

Proxy:
host:"10.200.72.2"
port:8080
match:"http+https://*:*/*"

Request Headers:

I saw this similar question https://community.developers.refinitiv.com/questions/48017/401-unauthorized-response-when-calling-httpget-v1g.html in which user says the issue was the endpoint, but without precising what was wrong - I am using the query from the provided Postman collection, so I guess it's

correct.


Can you help me out figure out what's wrong with my query?


Thanks

@vincent.fuchs,

I have made the question private. Request you to please mask the API credentials from the query so that we can make the query public again.

done. let me know if I need to send you privately the API key and secret.

OK, so looks like it was an issue in the way I was using Postman : I had left the "current value" field empty, thinking it would use the "initial value".


I copy/pasted the values in "current value" also, and now it works.
