Discogs oauth1 configuration

Describe the issue/error/question

I’m new to n8n. I try to configure with discogs API, but did not work. I’m use oAuth1.

What is the error message (if any)?

but I get 403 - “Forbidden\n”

Please share the workflow

I don’t know if I miss something to configure.

Share the output returned by the last node

Hi @cesar_dev, welcome to the community :tada:

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble. Have you considered using their alternative authentication via query parameters or headers?

From reading Discogs API Documentation this seems to be the recommended options for applications like n8n:

If you do not plan on building an app which others can log into on their behalf, you should use this authentication method as it is much simpler and is still secure. Discogs Auth requires that requests be made over HTTPS, as you are sending your app’s key/secret or token in the request.

I tested this by generating an API token on https://www.discogs.com/settings/developers and then setting up the header authentication in n8n like so (replacing abcxyz123456 with my actual token):


I could then run the workflow below as expected:

Would this approach work for you?

Hi, Now it works fine.

Thanks for help.
