Tagged: API Validation

I was hoping to use the API to validate against dqc rules by posting the required parameters, per the documentation, to the /api/v1/assertion/validate/ endpoint.
However, I am only getting back this:
This occurs if I use Insomnia, or my own code. It also occurs even if I remove all the additional fields. Is this a permission error of some sort? Any assistance is appreciated.

Adam, thanks for writing. Currently access to use validation through the API is on a request basis. As a Center for Data Quality participant I’ve given you access and have sent further details to your email.
