I'm using this link as my model for testing the REST API, and I get all the way through the authorize prompt to a "403 Forbidden" response (this is for both the customer and admin examples).
Invalid auth/bad request (got a 403, expected HTTP/1.1 20X or a redirect)
STEP 3 - I get the desired authorize prompt
STEP 4 - I click authorize and I get the above 403 response
I have setup the REST user and role as according to the instructions at the above link, and believe I have followed all other steps - multiple times. I'm at a loss as to why this fails.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? I've also tried using the Firefox and Chrome API extensions with the same result.
UPDATE: I found that someone else solved this issue when the request was passed over HTTPS. There is nothing in the tutorials mentioning a prereq SSL. Has anyone else successfully used REST without SSL? See their solution here--> Why do I get unauthorized for REST API
