HTTP ERROR 403 error when using the KNM API

Problem:

After the recent changes to the KNM API calls when trying to access the API as per the below help link, we are getting the below error.

 

 

Resolution:

To overcome this issue it is recommended that you use the API key.

Create an API key for your username by going to Network Monitor=>User=>My Settings->Basic properties and click new if there is no entry or copy the entry that already exists in the API Key: field.

Once you get the API key there would be a change in the URL's which would allow you to access the KNM API.

For example:
     <server url>/knm/extract.xsi?cmd=version&user=kadmin
becomes:
     <server url>/knm/extract.xsi?cmd=version&user=kadmin&apikey=7779F00A07A14A1C58581262ADD250C8

 

Note: The API key generated is user-specific.
