Hi Kelly,

Still facing the same issue, I don't know what is wrong in this code (No Syntax error detected)

Error: Invalid API Credentials.

Used postman to fetch the data using same parameters and it is giving data without any error.


I think something is wrong in this part: 

webdata = Web.Contents(url, [Content = Text.ToBinary(RequestBody), Headers=header])

Pls help !
