Credential errors API from remote Server

Good morning,


I'm starting to use the API for exporting different reports from a remote server.


1) I've generated the API Key

2) I've checked if it runs in my browers without credentials 

https://<myserver>/api/?type=config&action=show&key=mykey=&xpath=/config/devices/entry/vsys/entry/rulebase/security ant the result is an XML with the Security Rulebase.

3) If I try with curl or wget the xml result is the following <response status = 'error' code = '403'><result><msg>Invalid credentials.</msg></result></response> 


Where can i find/ solve this issue? 



kindly regards

Try using the following example with curl,


Make sure it doesn't include spaces. If that still gives you an error I'd suggest trying generating a new API key with a different username.
