403 Error - Forbidden

403 Error - Forbidden

Posted 19 Feb 2019, 21:29:58

I keep getting a 403 error and am not sure how to resolve it.
I've been trying to query the api using Postman. I have entered my api key in the header as x-api-key and am setting the Content-Type to application/json.

Thinking it was an error on my part using Postman, I've even tried using the Swagger interface and am getting the same error.

    • Edited to note I noticed the following in the response header:

“x-amzn-errortype”: “ForbiddenException”

Any help will be appreciated!
If you need more info from me, let me know… I'm fairly new to working with api's.

Any typo in your API key maybe? Just tried it with your key and a different key and it worked both times. I tried Swagger and also curl. This is the curl request that worked:

curl -X GET —header 'Accept: application/json' —header 'x-api-key: [your api key here]' 'https://api.setlist.fm/rest/1.0/artist/0bfba3d3-6a04-4779-bb0a-df07df5b0558'
