Another {'error': 'Unauthorized', 'status': 401, 'message': 'Missing User OAUTH Token'} post

I have read through All 43 posts, and i tried to employ each of the debugging steps. I am clearly doing something wrong, But i do not know where.

I am generating my oauth using this in python:


self.redemptionHeadder["Client-Id"] = self.clientID
self.redemptionHeadder["Authorization"]="Bearer {}".format(self.oauth)

Next i validate my tokens with:

response  = requests.get(path, headers=self.redemptionHeadder)

It returns

{'client_id': <client id removed>, 'scopes': ['channel:read:redemptions'], 'expires_in': 5531017}

I then request the custom redeems list via

response = requests.get(path, headers=self.redemptionHeadder)
data = response.json()

It returns the 401 but when i run the http debugger i get this:

GET /helix/channel_points/custom_rewards?broadcaster_id=141039735 HTTP/1.1\r\nHost:\r\nUser-Agent: python-requests/2.24.0\r\nAccept-Encoding: gzip, deflate\r\nAccept: */*\r\nConnection: keep-alive\r\nClient-Id: <removed Clien ID>\r\nAuthorization: Bearer <removed oauth key>\r\n\r\n

You have the wrong token type, you generated an app access token aka Server to Server token. This is a “server token” and as the error says you need a “user token”

You need a user access token.

An App access token doesn’t represent a user (and essentially can earn no useful scopes)

A grant_type=code not a grant_type=client_credentials, will will also need an oAuth loop since you need some webservery bits to run this flow (to recieve HTTP Get requests)
