How to get AuthToken when I have IAF Token?

Hello,

 

My app makes use of IAF token to make Trading calls ..but something has changed and GetClientAlertsAuthTokenRequest stopped accepting it and is asking for AuthToken.

 

Is it possible to retrieve an AuthToken using IAF token or make GetClientAlertsAuthTokenRequest work with IAF?  Sending something through the authentication process again is not an option.

 

 

Thanks

Hi

 

To make trading api calls, you need an AuthToken. I don't think you can generate AuthToken using IAF token.

 

Here is the KB article that walks you through the steps to create an Auth Token : https://ebaydts.com/eBayKBDetails?KBid=2018

 

Thanks

Are you sure about IAF token not working with trading API?

 

I can make other calls with it just fine eg:  GetFeedback, SetNotificationPreferences and GetUser  ..among others.

 

Also, GetClientAlertsAuthToken works fine for my own eBay account.  I received reports that alerts were not working so I created a new eBay account and for this new account the call fails with "Auth token does not exist" when proving IAF token in the headers.

 

Again, it works fine for my own eBay account, very strange.

I don't have any support hours, spending $75 ..I'm not sure.

 

I can't really explain in public how/why I'm using IAF token instead of regular auth token ..might get me in trouble due to confidentially agreement I have with eBay.
