Problem :

We upgraded to TFS 2017 and our API calls stopped working and we started receiving following error:
"TF400813: Resource not available for anonymous access. Client authentication required.". Anything in [] brackets was replaced.

I amt don’t know why the code block is having issues.

using (var myclient = new HttpClient(new HttpClientHandler()))
myclient.Timeout = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(3);
myclient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new AuthenticationHeaderValue("Basic",
myclient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Accept.Add(new MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/json"));
HttpResponseMessage myresponse = myclient.GetAsync($"https://[server]:8080/tfs/[node]/[node]/_apis/build/builds?api-version=2.0&definitions={buildDefinitionNumber}&resultFilter={resultFilter}&$top={maxBuildCount}").Result;
var myresult = myresponse.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;
return (JArray)JObject.Parse(myresult)["value"];

Solution :

As a solution on yhe issue, I just created a personal access token (PAT) and I was able to get authenticated using that PAT.

This is not the ideal way as I am putting my personal access token in the code to get this working. I was using the service account so now I am trying to understand that how can I create a PAT for the service account and/or I am still trying to figure out a way to make it work like it once did because I can not login to the TFS dashboard with the service account.

Please refer the following Updated Code:

string mycredentials = Convert.ToBase64String(System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(string.Format("{0}:{1}", "", "<PAT>")));
myclient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new AuthenticationHeaderValue("Basic", mycredentials);
