Error:invalid_client getting the Client Credentials

Hi, I’m trying to get the “Client Credentials” to access the Cloud Orchestrator API and I’m getting the following error {“error”:“invalid_client”}.

  1. I have created the External application as described

  2. The application is of type “Confidential application”

  3. I have the “OR.Machines.Read” to application scope

  4. To get the token I’m doing the steps described on “Client Credentials” on UiPath documentation

  5. When I’m executing the crul command I’m getting the http code 400 with {“error”:“invalid_client”}

My crul command is:
curl -X POST -H “Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded” -d ‘{ grant_type: “client_credentials” client_id: “api ID” client_secret: “App scret” scope: “OR.Machines.Read” }’

Any suggestion how to solve this issue ?

Make sure de clientID and secret id are not encoded,
