Authentication Issue with REST or BAQ call

(William) #1

As i have been working with the rest API i have been getting around the issues that pop up.

Currently have a HTTPS link to access our rest api where we can make calls to the API to receive back data as a Rest call or as a BAQ. However when we go to use the call in an application that we have it brings back this error.

Exception: The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme ‘Anonymous’. The authentication header received from the server was ‘Basic Realm=‘Epicor REST API’’.

We have a cert onto our server and the login is correct when trying to access the API.
Anyone have any help ideas?

Looks like you are not passing your Authorization header… what does your request look like?

I agree with @josecgomez.sixs This is an example from Postman and shows the sending of the Basic auth header:

Here is an example using jquery

var userNa = ‘USERID:PASS’;
var auth = window.btoa(userNA);

//Coded string to be sent by the Ajax Call
var header = {‘Authorization’:'Basic ’ + auth};

function callFunction(url,methodType,callback) {
async: ‘true’,
url: url,
method: methodType,
headers: header,
success: callback,
