Workflow API Connector back into Okta 403 Forbidden

The standard workflow card for updating an account won’t do what I need. An API will do what I need. Therefore I created a workflow API Connector. When I try to GET a user account, I get 403 Forbidden. I am using same URL and Headers that I use with Postman.
What do you think is happening?
How can permissions be missing?

Hello Scott!

It looks like maybe the authentication itself on your connector is having difficulty. Do you have the redirect_uri added into any app you might be using to authenticate? What happens if you set up the authentication again?

It may be easier to use the Okta Connector: Okta connector | Okta - you should be able to choose “Custom API Call” here and customize the API call how you need.

I opened a Case and discovered that only needed to set the API Connector to use Auth Type = None . I think I was previously using Basic.
