Getting error while browsing the discovery service url although service is already installed and status is started

I think you'd need to change the security configuration to allow access to the discovery service.

Change Security OAuthEnabled to false and Rules Enabled to false in cd_ambient_conf.xml in the discovery service's config folder, and then restart the service.


That error can be considered a "good error"; if you get that error in your browser, it implies the Discovery Service is up-and-running and OAuth is enabled (so you will get such error unless you provide a valid bearer token in your request, which a browser will never do).

If you want to browse the contents of your Discovery Service, you can disable security (as described by Sabarish) or you could obtain a bearer token from the token service and send a request (e.g. using Postman or Fiddler) including the bearer token (which will expire shortly after you have requested it). Security is a necessary evil. :-)

    Just to note, bearer token expires in every 5 min and that can be configured as well. Commented Jan 19, 2017 at 8:41
