    It seems like your session is expired, you need to login and get new request token.

    Even after getting a new token same error.
  • gurugg0802
    Today I ran the same with a new generated API secret. Still getting the same error. Should I try to create a new application and try the same?
  • Vinnce
    my api subscription was inactive ... I reactivated it .. and previously working login flow stoped working ..

    getting flowing error
    Array ( [status] => error [message] => Invalid `checksum`. [data] => [error_type] => TokenException )
  • gurugg0802
    Using all correct keys api_key, api_secrete, user_id, and requestToken.

    I have read all the relevant discussion but nothing helpful, I can send API keys, secrets separately.
    This app newly created few days back, please help.

    Did you go through this thread?
  • gurugg0802
    @sujith , This is a wrong thread as here it is talking about an access token which gets generated and then expires. For me, it is not even getting generated for a new api_secret created on that day. Please help me [email protected]
  • sujith
    You can check the documentation here https://kite.trade/docs/connect/v3/user/
    Double check if you are doing every step properly.

    I was facing the same issue (invalid checksum) after my API subscription got expired yesterday. Regenerating the API secret and using it in code solved it for me.
  • gurugg0802
    @sujith, While trying to follow the documentation, I am getting the error while running the /session/token API. It is giving an 400 error (Bad request) that the 'api_key' should be minimum 6 characters in length, so token is not getting generated.
  • sujith
    Are you sure you are making a form post request?
  • gurugg0802
    yes. How can I send the screen shot from Postman request?
  • sujith
    Can you private message the api_key and send me the curl of the request you are making?
  • gurugg0802
    Access token is still not being able to be retreived. Kindly provide the exact algorithm to be able to continue with the application created.
  • sujith
    Everything seems fine with your app. We have tried it multiple times. You can check the login flow here.
