Hello,

I am doing a basic call to whm api 1 by following documentation https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/DD/Guide+to+WHM+API+1

I have created the api token from whm panel. And trying to do a get request via Postman to get an user account statistics.

Code:
GET https://server.xxxxx.com:2087/111111111111111111111111/json-api/accountsummary?api.version=1&user=username
I get 403 in return

Code:
{"cpanelresult":{"apiversion":"2","error":"Access denied","data":{"reason":"Access denied","result":"0"},"type":"text"}}

NOTE: The api token as root access (double checked). Also check in response the apiversion is 2 so I am gussing the documentation is not upgraded and doing the api call I am calling the version 2 of the api?

What I am doing wrong?

Hi I am experiencing the same issues and im using POSTMAN. I just need clarity on the following. 1. Where exactly in the URL should i be placing the token, is it the part in ur example with "1111111..." 2. Please explain what do you mean by Authorization Header. I dont seem to have that option under Authorization
