Attempting to use CVAD REST API fails to obtain token with error 404

Bill Powell1709164126


Starting from https://developer-docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-virtual-apps-desktops/citrix-cvad-rest-apis/citrix-virtual-apps-and-desktops-apis I'm attempting to obtain a token from the endpoint https://xxxx.yyyy.zz/cvad/manage/Tokens where xxxx.yyyy.zz is the DNSHostName of either of my DDCs (as obtained from Get-ADComputer). 
My (powershell) code is :


    try {
        $TokenResponse = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $tokenUrl -Method POST -Body @{
            Accept = "application/json"
            Authorization = "Basic $EncodedAdminCredentical"
        $token = $TokenResponse.Content | ConvertFrom-Json
        Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green "Request token to $tokenUrl succeeded"
    catch {
        $exception = $_
        Write-Host -ForegroundColor Yellow "Request token to $tokenUrl rejected: $($exception.Exception.Message)"


The error is "The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found."
I take that to indicate that the cvad/manage/Tokens endpoint isn't recognised. I also tried changing the -Body to -Headers (with the same 404 failure code resulting)

The DDC has 'Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7 2203 LTSR CU2' installed. The version is '2203.0.2000.2076'

Any guidance as to what I'm doing wrong?
