    Hi Al,
    Can't get pass the httpResponse.

    Any idea what I could be missing

    //Configure URI
                WebRequest request = WebRequest.Create(@"https://xxxx.xxxx.com/v1/operators/" + queryParameter);
                //Add Content type
                request.ContentType = "application/json";
                //Add Api key authorization
                request.Headers.Add(HttpRequestHeader.Authorization, "Basic " + apiKey);
                //Set request method
                request.Method = "GET";
                //Perform the request
                var httpResponse = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
            if (httpResponse.StatusCode.ToString().ToLower() == "ok")

    Thanks in advance

    bring up fiddler and check whether you are sending the correct address, 404 means the resource is not there

    Hi najjacoder,

    I'm sending the right url but I found my issue after testing with postam

    What do you mean of postam?

    The 404 error means that the resource you request doesn't exist. What's the result when you request the url https://xxxx.xxxx.com/v1/operators/ in your web browser?

    And you can use the try...catch statement to see if you can get more detailed error message about this issue.

    Best Regards,

    (@"https://xxxx.xxxx.com/v1/operators/" + queryParameter);

    Most likely, the parm data is causing the url to be malformed causing the web method not to be found. You can use fiddler free to look t the row http trffic, and you can also use f12F12 browser Developer Tool using the Network option to view the raw HTTP traffic, looking for any malformaity in the url.
