When I m calling that from POSTMAN with the access token,etc.. I m getting the response. But when I m calling this from Apex it is giving Unauthorized(status:401). I don't know why. See code below:

public static httpResponse callOut () {
    HTTP h = new HTTP();
    String httpMethod = 'GET';
    String accountId = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx';
    String authToken = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx';
    String endpoint = 'https://api.apifonica.com/v2/accounts/' + accountId ;
    httpRequest req = new httpRequest();
    String authValue = accountId + ':' + authToken;
    Blob headerValue = Blob.valueOf(accountId +':'+authToken);
    String authorizationHeader = 'Basic' + EncodingUtil.base64Encode(headerValue);
    //Use the HTTP Class to send the httpRequest and receive an httpResponse
    httpResponse res = h.send(req);
    System.debug('response' + res.getBody());
    return res;

Here is the screenshot of Postman: enter image description here Thanks for helping!

  • I think you're missing a space in your header, try: String authorizationHeader = 'Basic ' + EncodingUtil.base64Encode(headerValue); – rael_kid Sep 7 '18 at 10:51

You're missing a space in your authorization header string, use this instead:

String authorizationHeader = 'Basic ' + EncodingUtil.base64Encode(headerValue);
