What does "invalid_client" response mean?

asked 2022-08-29 16:11:19 -0600


I'm trying to get a token for the SMLSA feed using the auth url

I'm assuming the Client Credentials are no longer valid but I would like confirmation on that. The error response {"error":"invalid_client"} is a little vague.

Do you have the Auth Type set to OAuth 2.0 ?

Yes. It is set to OAuth 2.0

I'm told it is normally returned when the account you are connecting with doesn't allow Web API access.
Are you able to connect now?

I am not able to. Also, I'm not comfortable sharing the username over the public forum.

Hello Bryce! I was able to obtain a token using the information for your account - I would recommend verifying the credentials being used to access the token request - it appears the account does have access and the proper settings to obtain the token.

Thank you, Sadie. I'll check with my team. The password must have changed as I'm still not able to get a new token.
