NetStorage ObjectStore HTTP API - 403 Error

Hey Folks,


I'm stuck with getting an 403 error all the time...


I've created an html page and i try to make an API call via Javascript using xmlHttpRequest.


i make two calls first to get Time from ../time.php:


echo time();


and then i sent local data sign to a php script:

var data_to_sign = [upload_url, action_header_value, auth_data_value, file_type];


$received_data = json_decode(file_get_contents('php://input'), true);
$auth_data = (string)$received_data[2];
$sign_string = (string)$received_data[0] . "\n" . "x-akamai-acs-action:" . (string)$received_data[1] . "\n";
$data_to_sign = $auth_data . $sign_string;
$key = "MyAPIKey";
$signature = base64_encode(hash_hmac("sha256",$data_to_sign,$key,true));

echo $signature;


There is also a file verification part i've cut out for now (doing both client and server side).


Now after i get all the data the following Request is being sent (created in Javascript using xmlHttpRequest)


PUT /{CP_CODE}/Upload/Akamai_Logo.png HTTP/1.1
Host: {my domain}
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0

‰PNG (File Data).

The CP Code is correct, the API key is correct, the Path exists, the upload account has full read/write permission to this cp code/ directoryI've tried adding the time via javascript ( var time = new Date(getTime());) but no change.

I've tried modifying the Accept-Encoding with Modify HTTP Headers plugin to set it to Identity but that didn't help in any way.


If i compare the time it seems ok:


Time in request: 1495139216 -> Thu, 18 May 2017 20:26:56 GMT

Server: Date: Thu, 18 May 2017 20:26:58 GMT


I keep getting 403 Forbidden:

To compare (using all the same variables) a successful output from a python script:


PUT /569131/Upload/Akamai_Logo.png HTTP/1.1

ccept-Encoding: identity

X-Akamai-ACS-Action: version=1&action=upload

200 OK and i can see the file on NetStorage.


Any idea's? Your help would be much appreciated!
