403 : Forbidden Operation to requested resource

Hi Friends

 

I am trying to get started with Visa Developer. In  my project I have added "Visa Transaction Controls" API, and I can see "Alert History and Customer Profiles API" under it.

 

However when I try to access below URI (as per API specifications https://developer.visa.com/capabilities/vctc/reference#vctc__customer_rules_alerts) ,  I get error 403 in response.

 

Can you help me to understand how to proceed further?

Hi @Ranjith

 

Have you registered the card before trying to add the Customer Alerts Profile ?  

 

Kindly register the card using the below API and try again.

Thank you,

Re: 403 : Forbidden Operation to requested resource


Apparently, the issue seems to be because of the test data. (improper card number)

When I tried "primaryAccountNumber": "4514170000000001", I get 403 "error" : "Forbidden Operation to requested resource"

However when I tried "primaryAccountNumber" : "4965152911511236", I get 422 "error" : [ "Unable to process due to invalid data." ]

When I tried "primaryAccountNumber" : "4865152911511237", Its success (even if i had not done the card registration)

Is there is any documentation on test data usage for card number?

Re: 403 : Forbidden Operation to requested resource

Hi @Ranjith

 

Out of the below card numbers which card numbers are from the TEST data tab ? Can you please let us know so we can debug further on the cards that are part of TEST data tab and are failing for you ?

 

Thank you,

Re: 403 : Forbidden Operation to requested resource

Hi Vaibhav,

 

The test data tab shows "486515291151XXXX" and any number starting in "486515291151" is working for me.

 

The error was when I tested using other numbers that are not conforming to test data.

 

For now I dont have an issue, as I am testing using proper test data.

 

Thanks for your support.
