I know this question has been asked a gazillion amount of times. But I’m trying to use golang oauth2/clientcredentials and oauth2/twitch packages to authorize my API but I can’t seem to get pass the 401, Client ID and OAuth token do not match error. I assumed you can use the authorization process directly through the oauth2 client, and the token will refresh itself if needed, therefore I didn’t bother with doing it via HTTP requests. The go code samples also recommend the same. Can anyone tell me what’s wrong here ? I set the redirect URL to localhost:3000, and the var for the codes are hidden above.
Debug it out and see exactly what headers you are sending.
I predict that it didn’t prefix the oAuth token with
Bearer TOKENHERE so the token isn’t correct. If this module is setup/updated to talk to kraken it’ll be using
OAuth TOKENHERE instead
If you generated the token yourself using your own credentials, then usually a
Client ID and OAuth token do not match error is from the client id header being incorrect (either missing, or incorrectly named) as a valid token but a missing, or misnamed, client id header will result in that do not match error. Ensure that the header you’re sending for client id is named
Wow, first of all, thank you so much for your swift replies. I’ve checked the header I was sending. And it turns out that since I typically use the token.SetAuthHeader(request) method to set the header for my requests, I assumed that they included my Client-ID verification somewhere in there. I added the Client-ID to the header, with request.Header.Set, and it worked now! Although it would be nice if there’s a method implemented like the setAuthHeader to set both of that at once for twitch API in one method…
Anyways, can’t stress enough on how long I was trying to figure this out, thank you so so much!!!
Now… just need to figure out how to close this thread.
