Getting 401 with custom app

Hi. I am building a custom app for the shortener TinyURL.com using TinyURL.com - shorten that long URL into a tiny URL and keep getting a 401. I am either really close to being done or really far :slight_smile: I would appreciate having my code looked over. I removed all default comments in case tinyurl is not jsonc compatible. TIA

“Authorization”: “Bearer {{connection.apiToken}}”
},

"response": {
	"error": {                                        
		"message": "[{{statusCode}}] {{body.error}}"  
	}
},

"log": {
	"sanitize": [                                     
		"request.headers.authorization"               
	]
}

}

	},
	"error": {                                        
		"message": "[{{statusCode}}] {{body.error}}"  
	}
},

"log": {

	]
}

I tried the same setup with what you have done and was able to Create a Token.

Maybe the token/key you are using is invalid? Can you try this app and see if you are getting the same error?

I think the “copy api” button in my tinyurl.com account was keeping whitespace on both ends of the key that were not being trimmed. I got it to work and completed it. Thank you
