My Question or Issue

I'm trying to use Python Search API with Python using bearer token. When I'm trying the API on API docs page of spotify using generated bearer token, I'm getting search results, but when I'm trying to use the same token with Python Code, I'm getting bearer token authentication error(400).

 

Can anyone help me to understand, why I'm not able to use search API using Python Code?

 

Python Code:

```

from requests import post, get

headers = {
    'Authorization': f'''Basic <'base64-encoded-secret'>'''
    ,'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'
    }
data = {'grant_type':'client_credentials'}
response = post(url = url, headers = headers, data = data).json()

authorization_header = f'''{response.get('token_type')} {response.get('access_token')}'''
print(authorization_header)
search_data = {
    'q': f'''track: ishq sufiyana year: 2011'''
    ,'type': 'track'
}
search_header = {
    'Accept': 'application/json'
    ,'Content-Type': 'application/json'
    ,'Authorization': authorization_header
}

search_response = get(url=search_endpoint, headers=headers, params=search_data).json()
print(search_response)

```
