Authorization failed. You are not authorized to perform this function

May 26 2023 5:57 AM

Hello Everyone,

I have developed a console application to upload base64-encoded documents. The application is scheduled to run every 5 minutes using Windows Task Scheduler.Sometime I'm encountering an authorization issue while trying to perform a specific function on the API calls. I would appreciate any help or insights you can provide regarding this error.

Error Message:
Authorization failed. You are not authorized to perform this function.

I'm currently working on integrating our application with the Hexagon EAM  using the  REST API. I'm attempting to make a request to the "upload document" endpoint in order to upload a new document.

Authentication Method:
I'm using basic authentication to authenticate my requests. I'm providing the username and password in the Authorization header using the "Basic" scheme.

Expected Behavior: I expect the API to upload the document with the provided details and return a success response with the newly upload document`s information.

Additional Information: I have verified that the provided username and password are correct. I have also double-checked the API documentation to ensure that I'm using the correct endpoint and the required fields in the request payload.

Help Needed: I would greatly appreciate any assistance or insights you can provide to help me troubleshoot this authorization issue. If you have encountered a similar problem or have any suggestions on what might be causing this error, please share your thoughts.

Thank you in advance for your time and help!

Best regards,
