Cannot create a token for the API


#1

I cannot create a token for the OVH API - every login combination I try results in an ‘invalid account/password’ combination

I have tried my email address, login for the manager as well as the pdXXXXXX-ovh login.

Appreciate any help in advance

Hi DanielP7,

I had the same problem. Then I’ve realised that there are different URL for key creation depending on your location. e.g. for Europe I had to go to: https://eu.api.ovh.com/createToken/ where I created successfully a token. Maybe this will help you/others.

I’m running in the same issue but I also made sure to use the correct endpoint for my region.

Same problem here. Tried on https://eu.api.ovh.com/createToken/ and https://api.ovh.com/createToken/, and always get the invalid account/password.
What is really frustrating is that the credentials work like a charm when using them on the console https://api.ovh.com/console/.

What a shit show
