Some of the API returns HTTP 403: Authenticated failed

Hi! I am a student developer with a great interest in developing a educational dictionary based on od-api. However, I found that some of the APIs returns HTTP 403: Authenticated failed even if I add the app_id and app_key in the request. This situation only happened in some of the APIs like /search/{source_lang}. I've tried both in the live documentation and on my local machine using Python code. It is really frustrating. I just don't know how to solve this, or is there anything I missed? Please help me!

    Hello @dderek970

    This error has occurred because there are requests to translations, sentences, search or thesaurus endpoints, which are restricted to users with a Prototype Plan, this means that you will have access only for Lemmas and Entries.

  • Hi @TaisFukushima, thanks for your attention! :#

    I checked the plan of my application, and it is exactly the Prototype plan.

    As far as I know, there are only 4 types of plans(prototype, developer, enterprise and research) and these plans have no differences other than the frequency of API usage. Am I right about this?

    Looking forward to your reply! :)
