API Authentication

Hi,

So I am a noob to API's and I bet that I am just doing something stooooooopid... but I need some help nonetheless....

I am stuck right at the beginning at authentication, using the below with an error (I know the clever people will help me to correct this):

$ curl -L -v --http2 --request POST 'https://eu1.psb.fsapi.com/mp/v1/authenticate/login' \

> --header 'X-API-Key: my-API-Key' \

> --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \

> --header '{

> "username":"my-PSB-email",

> "password":"my-PSB-password"

> } '

* Connection state changed (MAX_CONCURRENT_STREAMS == 128)!

* HTTP/2 stream 0 was not closed cleanly: PROTOCOL_ERROR (err 1)

* stopped the pause stream!

* Connection #0 to host eu1.psb.fsapi.com left intact

curl: (92) HTTP/2 stream 0 was not closed cleanly: PROTOCOL_ERROR (err 1)

    Hi @CliveC,

    with a quick look it looks that you are posting the username and password in header and not as the body. And they should be part of the body of the POST message like:

    { username: 'your-username', password: 'your-password' }
