Error code 215


#1

when i use this api https://api.twitter.com/1.1/account/update_profile_image.json to change profile image. i got this message from twitter {“errors”:[{“message”:“Bad Authentication data”,“code”:215}]}.what does this mean?
ps:i can tweet status successfully.but can’t update profile image.i use adobe air app to do this.


#2

Interesting. Do you know the HTTP saus code that accompanied this error?

Are you performing the update with or without Base64 encoding? Can you share your signature base string?


#3

I have tried regenerating the API keys to no result.


#4

I have the same exact issue, and am using Base64 encoding. Getting these errors:
400 Bad Request
{“errors”:[{“message”:“Bad Authentication data”,“code”:215}]}

i use tweetr lib to do this

now i can upload photo.


#8

Wow, now I just need to get that translated to Ruby :slight_smile:


#9

I tried switching to using SSL by default and other tricks, but none did it.
Did some undocumented change happen?


#10

what’s your email ad?


#11

400 | {“errors”:[{“message”:“Bad Authentication data”,“code”:215}]}
same issue


#12

Same issue happening here, with a valid access token and secret. Is this some type of intermittent problem with the API? I can authorize successfully, but I cannot authenticate with the returned token and secret. I just keep getting a response of:

[message] => Bad Authentication data

[code] => 215


#13

Same issue here:

Authorization: OAuth oauth_consumer_key=“pgdxowbuLIgB93xD5qw84g”, oauth_nonce=“2333904560751657”, oauth_signature=“mRJxV9pv9oP1d6MjBtg6sso0iAc%3D”, oauth_signature_method=“HMAC-SHA1”, oauth_timestamp=“1354005685”, oauth_token=“56183112-cbXnWNKdVuKK9fXBiuxojwehNeK75cmrPZtaaKeYa%2CpTOvVy4CsKXs6wMOI8a8mGVVfjfQrRPyzmoHjg”, oauth_version=“1.0”


{“errors”:[{“message”:“Bad Authentication data”,“code”:215}]}

Alright, I am still trying to solve this problem. Below is my code. I’m using Abraham’s oauth library.

require(‘twitteroauth/twitteroauth.php’);
unset($_SESSION[‘test’]);
session_destroy();
session_unset();
session_start();

// The TwitterOAuth instance
$twitteroauth = new TwitterOAuth(‘consumer’, ‘consumer’);
// Requesting authentication tokens, the parameter is the URL we will be redirected to
$request_token = $twitteroauth->getRequestToken(‘http://exhilaraterockford.com/twitter_oauth’);
// Saving them into the session
$_SESSION[‘oauth_token’] = $request_token[‘oauth_token’];
$_SESSION[‘oauth_token_secret’] = $request_token[‘oauth_token_secret’];
// If everything goes well…
if($twitteroauth->http_code==200){
// Let’s generate the URL and redirect
$url = $twitteroauth->getAuthorizeURL($request_token[‘oauth_token’]);
header('Location: '. $url);
} else {
// It’s a bad idea to kill the script, but we’ve got to know when there’s an error.
die(‘Something wrong happened.’);
}

Above is the login script, which then redirects the user to Twitter. They login and are sent back to /twitter_oauth, which has this code:

<?php
require(‘login.php’);
require(“twitteroauth/twitteroauth.php”);
session_start();
mysql_select_db($db_database);

if(!empty($_SESSION[‘username’])){
// User is logged in, redirect
header(‘Location: /appreciate’);

}

if(!empty($_GET[‘oauth_verifier’]) && !empty($_SESSION[‘oauth_token’]) && !empty($_SESSION[‘oauth_token_secret’])){
// We’ve got everything we need
} else {
// Something’s missing, go back to square 1
header(‘Location: /twitter_login’);
}

// TwitterOAuth instance, with two new parameters we got in twitter_login.php
$twitteroauth = new TwitterOAuth(‘Consumer’, ‘Consumer’, $_SESSION[‘oauth_token’], $_SESSION[‘oauth_token_secret’]);
// Let’s request the access token
$access_token = $twitteroauth->getAccessToken($_GET[‘oauth_verifier’]);
// Save it in a session var
$_SESSION[‘access_token’] = $access_token;
// Let’s get the user’s info
$user_info = $twitteroauth->get(‘account/verify_credentials.json’);

?>

I am seeing a few things. The session is updating and getting a new signature and nonce. The token and verifier remain the same. When I run $user_info = $twitteroauth->get(‘account/verify_credentials.json’); I receive the following: “stdClass Object ( [errors] => Array ( [0] => stdClass Object ( [message] => Bad Authentication data [code] => 215 ) ) )”

Any help would be appreciated.


#15

Hi mates,
I’m having the same issue ({“errors”:[{“message”:“Bad Authentication data”,“code”:215}]}). Can anyone tell me how I fix it? Thanks!


#16

use new TwitterOAuth(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET,$_SESSION[‘oauth_token’],$_SESSION[‘oauth_token_secret’]);

use $_SESSION[‘oauth_token’],$_SESSION[‘oauth_token_secret’] parameter in 3 and 4th


#17

just do,t print it use $username = $user_info->name; to get parameter


#18

I have the same error, but not autenticarme, simply make a call to this link.https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=

I need to know how you would implement in java for Obetener tweets of words to search for.
