Need help on using DirectAdmin API (Unauthorized Error)

sanvitsanvit Member

Hello!

I am having a weird issue when using DA's API with basic auth (MXroute).

I'm 100% certain the credentials are correct, however I'm getting "Unauthorized" error on every even requests, while the API works fine on every odd requests.

I'll put a screenshot of my current code, as well as the error I'm getting when the "Unauthorized" error happens. If anyone experienced this issue, or knows a fix for it, any input will be highly appreciated.

Thanks!

    Do you see the same behavior when you do the series of requests from Postman?

    EDIT: Obligatory 4d chess galaxy brain comment, keep a counter and retry the request on even values

    Yup, same happens with Postman as well.

    Lol I was originally thinking of that to if no other options work. However, I think I found the issue.

    It seems like when you send both the session cookie and the authentication credentials, DA will clear the session and log you out.

    I was able to fix it by disabling cookie on requests.session.

    I haven't written anything against the DA API so I wouldn't know, but is there a particular reason you're using a session (instead of stateless requests) to interact with the API?

    I was copy-pasting from some other code for testing. This wasn't the issue however, as DA doesn't seem to care the Accept header.

    Session isn't required to interact with DA API. However, I couldn't think of a better way to send authentication data on every request without putting auth parameter on every function.
