Basic HTTP Auth now asking for username & password

1 0 0

Hi All,

I've been connected with a Shopify store using a basic HTTP auth provided directly by the store owner to me (they got the key by going into admin > private app > API key etc)


For the last few weeks, I've use the following format:

e.g. https://${api_key}:${password}@${base_url}/admin/api/${version}/${endpoint}


As of this morning, I'm now get:
    “errors”: “[API] Invalid API key or access token (unrecognized login or wrong password)”


If I use the example link provided when generating the keys, I'm asked for a username and password.


Previously her keys were generated on version 2021-04 if that matters. 

Was anything changed with basic HTTP Auth? Did we hit a cap/limit (and if so, what are the limits, will it cool down)? Or was access revoked and need to regenerate keys (do they automatically expire)?

I don't see that response when i do a few calls. Do you still see it? If you do post back with the call you're making and will try and replicate it.

I will assume you're not sending cookies in the request.

Did you solve this problem?
I currently need to fetch data from the admin api in a liquid file.
