DC 1 EST Enrollment via Passcode fails

Solution ID : SO140322220816
Last Modified : 10/21/2023


When testing IOT Enrollment with EST using passcode, the enrollments fail.

You can verify the error using Postman.

The request fails with the below error:


    "errors": [


            "code": "snowbird_authorization_error",

            "message": "Invalid username or passcode"





Once the passcode is generated within IOT Manager, it needs to be converted to Base64 first (Example: http://www.utilities-online.info/base64/#.XyUHCvgzbyg) to do the conversion, and then add the passcode to the header in Postman.
Run the EST enrollment again and the enrollments will succeed.
