“Invalid login attempt” is a generic error thrown by NetSuite when there’s something misconfigured in the authentication headers. The best way to troubleshoot this is to use the “Login Audit Trail” search. From there, you should be able to troubleshoot what went wrong with your parameters. It could be that you entered an extra character or blank space to one of your tokens (which is pretty common) or you’re not generating new timestamp or nonce.

To do this, follow these steps from the Help Guide:

  1. Go to Setup > Users/Roles > User Management > View Login Audit Trail.
  2. Check the Use Advanced Search box.
  3. Click the Results subtab.
  4. Add the following fields: Detail, Token-based Access Token Name, and Token-based Application Name.
  5. Click Submit.

    The Detail column displays error messages for any token-based authentication logins with a status of Failure.

It does work now. I just set up my time zone’s desktop pc same as my office pc and it worked now. Thank you very much!

For some reason the Login Audit Trail search didn’t show my failed attempts, while it does now show my successful attempts after I fixed my signature. Could have used the login error feedback while troubleshooting.
