[SOLVED] Error 401 Unauthorized connecting with Marvel API


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Mason Ballowe

I am attempting to query the Marvel API: https://developer.marvel.com/docs

When I try to select the first public option to get /v1/public/characters it provides me with the URL to query:


When I run my normal Rest API code with this URL, I get no response. See below:

    let urlString = "https://gateway.marvel.com:443/v1/public/characters?apikey=MYKEY"
    let url = URL(string: urlString)
    let session = URLSession.shared
    let dataTask = session.dataTask(with: url!) { (data, response, error) in
        guard let data = data else {return}
        do {
            let recievedData = try JSONDecoder().decode([ReturnedData].self, from: data)  
        } catch {

I already followed instructions from :Error 401 Unauthorized connecting with Marvel API and added an “*” as a new option for authorized domains. I do not know what the “hash” is as I’m using the exact copy/paste of the API URL recommended by Marvel.

Any help?

As @marcel-konjata noted, I changed my authorized referrers in my My Developer Account page. And it worked.
