Get Token API not working.

I tried the /auth/oauth2/v1/token in API playground, but the request is always not successful. See image below:



The client_id I used is generated from APP KEY(Eikon App Key Generator). Please help.

Hi @filip.shu,

I would recommend you follow the simple Quick Start tutorial to test your user credentials. I too was unable to fetch a token using the Playground interface and I know my credentials work. Perhaps I'm missing a step or the service may not be working. I will follow up and post an update here.

Posting it just for reference, this due to CORS policy.

In the case of the EDP API Gateway, the origin for API Playground may be something like https://apidocs.refinitiv.com. When a user clicks "Send" on API Playground a request is then sent to the API Gateway at https://api.refinitiv.com. A modern browser will prevent this Cross-Origin request from occurring, unless you have correctly configured your Swagger and back-end. This is to prevent some forms of cross-site request forgery attacks.
