      Hello,

      I am trying to create/generate the auth token, but I am getting the following error from the https://api.xbrl.us/oauth2/token end point

      {
      “error”: “invalid_client”,
      “error_description”: “Bad Client”
      }

      I checked the client ID and secret multiple times.

      The following is the raw body (masked client id and secret):

      grant_type:password
      client_id:XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
      client_secret:XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
      username:username
      password:pass
      platform:pc

      Any assistance would be much appreciated.

      Thanks
      Aj

      Hi Ajit – what are you using to POST – ? – Insomnia, Postman or another testing client, or are you writing code in a language – ?

      There are instructions for Insomnia posted at the end of the PDF documentation.

      If you’re working in a language, check out the resources for PHP, Python and R linked in the list of free resources on the XBRL Data Community. Briefly, you need to POST body, and encoding to the token URL, then use the access_token as “Bearer $token” with your query.

      If you’re still having an issue, post back and share the code you have and language you’re using.

      David

      Thanks David. It works now. The issue was with the username and password
