Matillion API unauthorized response JSON


Recently I started working on Matillion API and these are the main articles currently I'm referring to.



I use this ( online curl requests submitting tool to test the curl requests mentioned in the article.

But I always ended up getting this error JSON response.

"success": false,
"msg": "Unauthorized",
"id": -1

I tried changing security group in bounds of aws ec2 instance of my matillion account. But no luck! It would be great if someone can help me. Thank you!

Hi Thedath

Can you SSH onto your Matillion EC2 instance? If so, can you try the Curl command via the command line there please?

Are you passing through a username and password using the format:
curl -u username:password -X GET -H “Content-Type:application/json” “”

The user will need to be an API user in Matillion. This can be checked in the Matillion Admin Console.
