Getting a 401 Unauthorized when publishing or verifying pacts

The most common reasons for API authentication failures are:

  1. Using an old version of a Pact library that does not support the authentication scheme that PactFlow accepts (bearer token authentication).
    • To resolve this, make sure you are using the latest version of the Pact library for your language.
  2. Attempting to access the API with a username and password instead of an API token.
  3. Using a read only token instead of a read/write token.
