Inheriting auth function not working

Hey there,

It seems like the inheriting auth function is not working for my collection. I have gone through the process of generating a token and adding my appropriate endpoint to my variable set but when I try to do certain posts I get an

    "message": "Session expired or invalid",
    "errorCode": "INVALID_SESSION_ID"

When I switch the Authentification method of this post from “Inherit auth from parent” to Bearer Token and use the same token I had previously generated for my collection, it works … It’s like it’s not actually being inherited…

Any ideas on why this wouldn’t be working …?


Hey @mission-architect-81! Welcome to the Postman community :rocket:

Sorry for the hassle. I understand the token in collection level is not passed to the child request, correct?

Have you saved the collection after setting the token in collection as discussed in the thread below?

If the issue persists, please feel free to submit a support request from here :smiley:
