Client suspended with the APi


sybessonne

Question

Hello, 

I'm a developer. I would like to launch trades automatically with the IG API.

But I'm currently suspended. I can't create a session with the API. I think this is because I use it too much maybe.

I have the message : 

"errorCode": "error.security.client-suspended"

 

Could you explain me how to remove the restriction to be allowed to reuse the API ?

 

Cordially

Hi @sybessonne,

It seems that your Demo account is locked (possibly password) once locked it will be suspended. Please reach out to helpdesk.uk@ig.com or use our live chat feature to contact our helpdesk with your account details to unlock your account.

All the best - Arvin

Hi all,

I have the same issue where I'm getting a 401 response with a '{"errorCode":"error.security.client-suspended"}'

This WAS on my DEMO credentials (must have been during my integration build, whoops. I did get everything working with my LIVE credentials though)

I since contacted the helpdesk.au@ig.com to share the error code and request they reset my DEMO credentials/account so I can access it ..

Helpdesk.au@ then asked if I was using the right credentials (of course I am) .. 

So I ran a couple of tests using my LIVE credentials to share with helpdesk.au@.ig.com to demonstrate that if you use the right credentials, you actually get a different error.. i.e. you get a 403 error:

- of '{"errorCode":"error.security.invalid-details"}' if you use the wrong password

- of '{"errorCode":"validation.pattern.invalid.authenticationRequest.identifier"}'  if you use the wrong username and password

- of  '{"errorCode":"error.security.api-key-invalid"}'' if you use the wrong API key but the right username and password

In doing so and helping helpdesk.au@ by demonstrating these different codes vs. scenarios I've now locked myself out of my DEMO account - per my original request (which was probably a whoops on my part), and now my LIVE account through using these credentials to demonstrate to them what the error codes are and what they mean.

For noting, I've been using my LIVE API credentials for 2 months now with no issue (so I know my integration is robust) but wanted to get access to the DEMO account to test my automated strategies before deploying into the LIVE environment.

Can someone please help ... I'm not sure that helpdesk.au@ understands the issue (and I mean no offense, just doesn't seem they have documentation to support the difference(s) in error codes etc. and what this code means they need to do at their end?)..

Thanks

Cam

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
