An unhandled exception of type 'System.Net.WebException' occurred in System.dll

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am getting below error when trying to connect to SharePoint Online site using REST API. 


    An unhandled exception of type 'System.Net.WebException' occurred in System.dll  

    Additional information: The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

    I am writing this code in Visual studio 2015. Below is my code:

    var url = "https://sudheero366.sharepoint.com/POCSite/_api/web";

    var client = new WebClient();
    //ICredentials credentials = new NetworkCredential(" my username", "my password");
    //client.Credentials = credentials;
    client.UseDefaultCredentials = true;

    var xml = client.DownloadString(url); // I AM GETTING ERROR IN THIS LINE
    var doc = XDocument.Parse(xml);
    XNamespace ds = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/ado/2007/08/dataservices";
    var titles = doc.Descendants(ds + "Title");
    var title = titles.First().Value;
    ResultsListBox.Items.Add(title);

    can some one help me where is it going wrong?

    Thanks,

    Sudheer.
