Rasax API JWT Authorization: InvalidAlgorithmError

I’m trying to update a tracker with the rasax api but have gotten the InvalidAlgorithmError below:

rasa-production_1  | [2020-07-30 19:57:35 +0000] [1] [ERROR] Exception occurred while handling uri: 'http://url/conversations/CONVERSATION_ID/tracker/events'

rasa-production_1  |     raise InvalidAlgorithmError('The specified alg value is not allowed')
rasa-production_1  | jwt.exceptions.InvalidAlgorithmError: The specified alg value is not allowed

Here’s the code that generates the error:

response = requests.post("http://35.209.144.66/core/conversations/{}/tracker/events".format(sender_id),
json={"event": "slot", "name": "my_slot", "value": False, "timestamp":int(time.time())},
headers={"Authorization": "Bearer " + auth_token})

This same format for hitting the API endpoints works for other endpoints but not this one for some reason. Any idea how I can get around this?

hi @basil-chatha, which other endpoints did the same authorization header work with?
