    Invalid Client error when using Oath2 Resource Owner Grant method for API Authentication, Response of Client ID is null?

    james1.hicks Novice

      Been using the Jive API on a Cloud IDE for past few years. Having to migrate away and develop locally on Windows and running into issues.


      When I use the Resource Owner Grant method described in OAuth 2.0—Creating a Client and Managing Access  to get the access token.


      I'm running the below command:

      curl -u '<client_id>:<client_secret>' -d 'grant_type=password&username=<username>&password=<password>' -insecure -k https://mysite.com/oauth2/token

      The response on the Cloud IDE, outside of our proxy, is:


      When running on my local computer I get:

      * Uses proxy env variable https_proxy == 'http://proxy.mysite.com:8080'

      *  * TCP_NODELAY set

      * Connected to proxy.mysite.com (***) port 8080 (#0)

      * Closing connection 0

      * TLSv1.2 (OUT), TLS alert, close notify (256):

      I see from the above that I get a connection of 200, so I am assuming I am making contact with Jive servers. But then I get a response of 400 and the bolded part I see the client ID is invalid or not registered and is null. We've been using this client_id and client_secret for a few years so I know they work.


      Anyone have any idea why this isn't working on Windows? I believe I am getting through the proxy, with the 200 initial status, but the client ID isn't being read? Is there a syntax difference with the command on Windows?


      Thank you,
