Why am I getting a "401 unauthorized" or "API-1029 : Authentication Error" when trying to use the REST APIs?


The user does not have the necessary rights.

In an environment that the REST API Access has not been disabled (in the CSA, Server properties > Application > Application Server > Disable REST API Access (unchecked)), please add the Global Access Right API - Access to the user trying to use the REST API.
