Internal Server Error in merchantlookup

Hello All

 

I'm trying out the Merchant Lookup API.

When I send the example request from the example provided in the API documentation, I'm getting a 500 Internal Server error.

 

The data I'm sending is

 

 

{

    "transactionType": "A",
    "transactionDate": "20191117",
    "transactionId": "309321556319387"
}

 

 

I'm referencing the documentation from the URL below
