“GSA Focus added us $26.8M in revenue over 4 years” – Ted M., Cask

What should I do if I am receiving a 400 error when attempting to access sensitive files in SAM.gov?

For 400 errors trying to access sensitive files, use the following checklist to troubleshoot common errors/issues:

  • Confirm you are using an API tool, not a browser to send the request.
  • Confirm you are using the username/password for the system account that created the API key in the authentication header.
  • Confirm you used POST and not GET for this request.
  • Confirm that the API key is from a production system account and you are attempting to hit a production endpoint.
  • Confirm that the system account you are using has “read sensitive” permissions.
