HI Andre,

Do you have the images for this post. They do not appear in the post above for some reason, and I'm hoping that your images will be able to help me get my postman tests working.

Thanks,

Anthony

What browser, operating system do you use? Is it reproducible in another browser?

thanks

Thanks, I've just been investigating this in case it was a firewall issue. It was. For some reason our firewall provider blocks all images as of last week! Thanks for posting the image locations.

Kindest,

Anthony

Thank you for the great post!

I added my credentials and the following path: http://server/livelink/livelink.exe/api/v1/nodes/235202 but I just get another pop up window asking for my credentials. Then I added the credentials again in the pop up, but post man won't authenticate the call and I get a 401 unauthorized message. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Sean

Hi Sean, did you try to use "Admin" default account? as the pop up seems to be Windows related auth.

Hi Andre,

Can you let me know how to use the ticket generated from the auth REST API call in subsequent requests while using postman.

Thanks and Regards,
