Why are no results returned for a RESTful GET request?

Overview

We are making RESTful Web service GET requests and getting a success back with no real results.


Environment

RESTful GET Request

Java API

Resolution

It was discovered that the developer's java API was not passing the required authorization header in the format "Basic [account number]:[license Key]"  More documentation on how to format a RESTful web service request  can be located here:  http://developer.avalara.com/api-docs/api-reference/rest-curl/estimatetax

Cause

 

Developer was making RESTful Web service GET requests bypassing the required Authorization string. This resulted in an HTTP 200 (success) however no results were returned.
