406 Not Acceptable Header when using gift card api

Working until yesterday afternoon, I now get (from my app) a "406 Not acceptable" header when attempting to create a gift card on a plus store I have collaborator and development access to.

 

I am using the admin rest api and can use "GET" to get a list of gift cards, but using "POST" has suddenly stopped creating cards.

 

My app receives no response body, yet replicating the request in postman receives an html-based error attempting to redirect to an oauth URL.

This is an accepted solution.

As many other 406 issues have identified a typo in the request, I have identified something similar in my requests.

The curl handle I was using in my PHP script was being over used and recycled. As such, additional headers were present and these were not understood or accepted by Shopify.

Using a new curl handle solved the issue

Hi,

 

As mentioned here.

Is your app a custom/private app and does it have the write_gift_cards access scope
