I am the admin of community.pynk.io and today i was assigned the task of connecting Discourse and Twitter using Zapier. I followed all steps but it happens that once i’ve filled all the fields(on Zapier side) to connect to my Discourse instance(hosted with you guys!) it throws an 403 error:
“authentication failed: Error code 403: Yu are not permitted to view the requested resource. The API username or key in invalid”
…that’s the error.
I’ve created an API key with user level=All Users and have choosen a couple of scopes to limit some things.
On Zapier side i’ve correctly typed the host url(https://community.pynk.io) and the API key i created before besides i 've used my own account on forum(admin privileges of course) but still no success after all.
The strange thing is that other two admins from our forum have tried to connect Zapier with Discourse(allow Zapier to acces our accounts on Discourse forum) and the same error is thrown…i am based in Cuba but those guys are based in England and Scotland, so i guess it is not a problem of blocking some IP’s or something like that.
