DnsMadeEasy authentication issue

See original GitHub issue

Hey everyone,

Dnsmadeeasy is throwing an exception with the following command: lexicon dnsmadeeasy --auth-username="xxxx" --auth-token="xxxx" list TXT where auth-username is API key & auth-token is Secret key.

root@test:~# lexicon dnsmadeeasy --auth-username="xxxx" --auth-token="xxxx" list TXT
Arguments: Namespace(action='list', auth_token='xxxx', auth_username='xxxx', content=None, delegated=None, domain='', identifier=None, name=None, priority=None, provider_name='dnsmadeeasy', ttl=None, type='TXT')
Starting new HTTPS connection (1): "GET /V2.0/dns/managed/name? HTTP/1.1" 403 79
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/lexicon", line 11, in <module>
    load_entry_point('dns-lexicon==2.1.12', 'console_scripts', 'lexicon')()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lexicon/", line 69, in main
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lexicon/", line 38, in execute
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lexicon/providers/", line 40, in authenticate
    raise e
requests.exceptions.HTTPError: 403 Client Error: Forbidden for url:

I’ve already made sure the keys are correct. Appreciate any tips on troubleshooting this.

EDIT: This issue has been resolved. If anyone is still facing issues relating to authentication, reset your clock with correct date/time.

Kind regards, Pavin Joseph.

v2.1.13 is now released and includes a fix for this issue.

I’ve opened a PR which should resolve this. I suspect it’s caused by Babel depending on the en_US locale being installed on your machine so I replaced that part with the python standard library
