401 error even though I am using my API key

Hello!

I am trying to make a GET request to this endpoint:
https://api.rawg.io/api/games?key=api_key_here&dates=2019-09-01,2019-09-30&platforms=18,1,7”

As said in the title, I get a 401 error. I used fetch with in-browser JavaScript. Does the API not allow this kinds of requests?

Note: I took into account CORS policy when making the request, still the error is not referring to it, but to something else.

Thanks!

Hi there.
You can use rawg api directly.

here is an example with js fetch:

get the details of the game with id ‘3498’:

fetch(‘https://api.rawg.io/api/games/3498?key=YOUR_RAWG_API_KEY’)
.then(res=>res.json)
.then(res=>console.log(res))

You can place ?key to the end of the url
