Can't get request client error 403

i can’t fetch data from alpaca Account - Documentation | Alpaca
when I try to fetch data from alpaca GitHub - infinitered/apisauce: Axios + standardized errors + request/response transforms.
using react component

import alpacaApi from '../services/alpaca'
    componentDidMount() {
        console.log('fetch data from alpaca')

        const api = alpacaApi()

        api.getAccount().then((response) => {

here is alpacaApi.js file

import apisauce from 'apisauce'

const alpacaApi = (baseURL = config.BASE_URL) => {
    const api = apisauce.create({
        baseURL: config.BASE_URL,
        headers: {
            'APACA-API-KEY-ID': config.ALPACA_API_KEY_ID,
        timeout: 5000

    const getAccount = () => api.get('v2/account')
    const getPostitions = () => api.get('v2/positions')

    return {

const config = {
    ALPACA_API_KEY_ID: "apikey",
    ALPACA_API_SECRET_KEY: "secretkey",
    BASE_URL: ""

export default alpacaApi

it shows error

 LOG  fetch data from alpaca

it didn’t show a properties data.
what should i do ??


Unless I’m missing something, you haven’t actually defined your API and secret keys in config.

ALPACA_API_KEY_ID: “apikey”,

You need to put your actual keys between those quotes.



I already put the actual api key & secret key from Alpaca – Crypto, Stock Trading API but still got error
[Error: Request failed with status code 403], “problem”: “CLIENT_ERROR”, “status”: 403}

i created it on python, it’s just to test if your paper credentials are correct.
