    I'm developing integration for one of our clients and would like to use Get Partner Channels route.

    According to documentation i need to get Resource Owner Grant access token. I send request in Api Console and receive following:

    1. {"error":"unauthorized_client","error_description":"The authorization grant or refresh token is invalid, expired, revoked or issued to another client"}

    I take key and secret from apps page and username/password that i use to login to the site. So what should i do to make it work?

    The username/password needs to be a username and password. The login you use for this site is actually a Mashery login, not Getty Images.

    Additionally, we need to enable Asset Changes for your key. Which may have already been done. I'm not sure what key you're using though. If you find that you are unable to successfully call Asset Changes, send me a quick email and we'll sort it out. matt dot dahlgren at

    Hi I have the same problem. I have a new sandbox client_id & client_secret and am trying to get a token using the API console using a valid login into .

    If I need 'Asset Changes' enabled how would I do that?

    We do not allow user authentication with sandbox keys. You would need a paid license agreement to do that. If you do have that, your sales rep would be able to get you a key that will do what you want.
