Re: [Ftpapi] I'm obviously missing something ...
I'll look at those options.
I was hoping someone would respond since I have resolved the problem but had no email to reply to!
In the end I had missed something - I had failed to notice just how huge the JWT authorization code was and defined the field too small - in the log I had done a check on what was shown but didn't check far enough down the string to notice the end had dropped off.
As to the content type - the API specification (and all their code samples) call for it so I left it in place. In the case of all of the POST APIs this will be required so I guess for simplicity they just leave it in all the time.
Thanks for your help.

So if you give a bad userid/password, it'll simply say '401, I need a userid/password' or if you give a bad bearer token, same thing, etc.

In this example, you are doing a GET request, so it is not sending any sort of data (aside from the URL itself, but content-type does not relate to the URL...)
