Permissions for the FIRMS NRT API

by earthranger_admin » Tue Jun 22, 2021 11:20 am America/New_York

As of June 1, we are not able to successfully access FIRMS data using our token. Receive a 401 now. I generated a new token from the EarthData dashboard which now starts with EDL-....., but that does not work. For my account I selected all of the FIRMS related services. How do I get permission to access this feed?

This is an example file that I am trying to retrieve: https://nrt3.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/api ... 021166.txt

Hi - I had the same problem, and just found this alert:
https://ladsweb.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/ ... /?id=63313

Tokens generated from my Earthdata login profile did not work, but when I generated a new token here, it works:

Thanks so much Kathleen. I was able to generate a working token at the location you suggested. And it works in my API calls.
