Hi,
 
I can't get this one to work, getting a weird error reply:
 
Error in call to API function "check/app": message:"Not base64 encoded" error_type:INVALID_BASE_64 
 
The other check endpoint works just fine (check/user). Any idea?
 
Regards,
Pascal

Please check that the encoded app key/secret value you pass as "Basic" authorization in the "Authorization" header are properly encoded. Based on the error, it sounds like your value isn't properly encoded. Please refer to the "App Authentication" documentation for information on how to format this.
