Channel creation failed with response HTTPResponse(status=401)


I have check all similar posts, but I could not find a good answer.

I have created the simplest configuration. I am using your iOS sample app where I have filled my bundle id and my project keys (app and secret)

I am still getting 401 when the channel should be created.

I can provide my keys and logs if needed.

  • Hi there! Thanks so much for reaching out to support, I just have a few questions to start:

    • Where specifically did you find your app key and secret (do not share your app key/secret here as this is a public forum)?
    • Did you copy/paste them or type them manually? 
    • If you typed them manually, would you mind copy/pasting them into your project, instead?
    • Can you verify that your bundle and team IDs match in your Apple developer portal, your code, and in your Airship dashboard? 

    Best wishes,
