I am trying to make an API request from postman to WordPress.
I get a
401 Authorization required error when I make the call, as per the screenshot below:
The credentials I am using are from the admin user of the site. I want to use OAuth in the future, but for testing purposes, I am trying to run a simple test with basic authentication, and move for OAuth afterward.
I do not understand if I am missing some WordPress configuration, or what is wrong here.
I have WordPress 4.9.5. I have tried going to the user details/ settings/profile to search for the API keys for the user, as per some information I found online, but I see no API related information in the admin user or other. I have tried making changes to the .htaccess file to add a line related to the Authorization, but I haven't been able to get this to work.
I am running out of options as I can't understand what I am missing...Any hints?
