Hello,

 

I'm very new to blackboard so please be gentle! I'm struggling to get authentication to work with the REST API.

 

I'm attempting to do this through Postman first, I want to ensure I know how to build the request before I start coding it in an official capacity.

 

DetailValue
URLhttps://{hostname}/learn/api/public/v1/oauth2/token
grant_typeclient_credentials

content-type

application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Http MethodPost
Authorization{basic auth key}

 

I get the response:

{

    "error": "invalid_client",

    "error_description": "Invalid credentials"

}

 

I wanted to try OAuth 2.0 instead but I don't know how to get an app key and secret and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.
