Problem with Swift API Gateway key authorizatiion Ask

0 votes

I tried adding a key for my API but there's a problem with implementing it into my application's code. 
I keep on getting a message = Forbidden;

I tried different methods but none of them seems to be working. 
I can't really figure out the problem here!

if let jsonData = try? dict, options: .prettyPrinted) {

        let url = NSURL(string: "\(APIAddress)")!
        let request = NSMutableURLRequest(url: url as URL)

        request.httpMethod = "PATCH"
        request.addValue("application/json", forHTTPHeaderField: "Content-Type")
        request.addValue("\(APIKey)", forHTTPHeaderField: "Authorization")
        request.httpBody = jsonData

        let task = URLSession.shared.dataTask(with: request as URLRequest) { data, response, error in
            if error != nil {
                print(error?.localizedDescription as Any)

            do {
                let json = try JSONSerialization.jsonObject(with: data!, options: .mutableContainers) as? NSDictionary

                if let parseJSON = json {
                    let resultValue = parseJSON["success"]
                    print("result: \(String(describing: resultValue))")
            } catch let error as NSError {

Please note the method was working before activating the API key on API Gateway

Try to add all the headers that are required for the request.

You can check these documents for the requests to be added:

Looks like you didn't add the host and x-amz-date headers.
