Excel service rest api throwing forbidden response code in Sharepoint designer 2013 workflow

New Contributor

Objective : Reading excel file (when this file changed) which exist in sharepoint online document library. Insert excel data in List.


Technical approach : Create a workflow in Sharepoint Designer 2013 & call excel service rest api in workflow. Workflow will run only when this excel sheet will be changed.


Problem: When calling excel service rest api with proper headers, getting forbidden error. Headers passed :

Accept - application/json; odata=verbose

Content-Type - application/json; odata=verbose


Analysis : When testing excel service rest api using fiddler, its not throwing any error & giving correct response. When calling this service in Javascript, its giving result without any error.


Can anyone please tell me what is the problem ?
