                    }
                ]
            });

Hi! Have you tried this with the latest version?

Does the value of configuration.RocketUsername variable exists accordingly as a valid user?

Maybe disabling 2AF for this user?

Sorry, I have limited experience with the stream api.

Hey, thanks for the reply. I found by digging a little further in the archive, very much appreciate the response. It seems the error is returned when I incorrectly encrypt the password field.

You are a long time out of date & support. You should be watching the releases and fixes all the time for changes & fixes.

There are security issues on your version. You should upgrade IMMEDIATELY to AT LEAST on 3.13.5

Note:

Always update to the latest stable version before reporting any bugs or before ask for help from the community.
