Issue/Introduction

since 2-3 months ago, we have been using the procedure to download patches for gateway as described in 

API Gateway: Download patches using curl

https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article?articleId=214206

to download the last platform patches for the API GW. Everything has worked smooth till today. When we tried to install June patches, we got a 404 error in step 2:

Step 1: GENERATE AN ACCESS TOKEN  (WORKED)

curl -k "https://ftp.broadcom.com/CrushFTPAPIForDownloads/webapi/getAccessTokenForPath?path=/pub/API_Management/Gateway/Platform_Patch/v10.x/Layer7_API_PlatformUpdate_64bit_v10.X-CentOS-2021-06-22.L7P"


{"access_token":"PB-5V4XNV8IKtBrXCCvq4OqYBVawyOmy4kuCK-8PPFUDzKZQi0KY4GwFgRA1095WunT094sewNVwQO53BWYm9SaK2lx-qvFTgyWGhV_ofmKCMWoLnUwYV5jkftulFebX9Gyur4-D1L0wEObXAe5pPKBOMSMn6dqMhW7rYWLMvDUhnxnZ-JTG1DFanj41PH5823wi2t627cWNnRknmuKgSD-wA==-PR","expires_in":3600} 

 

Step 2: SAVE THE TOKEN TO COOKIES (FAILED)

wget --max-redirect 3 --save-cookies cookies.txt --keep-session-cookies 'https://ftp.broadcom.com/pub/API_Management/Gateway/Platform_Patch/v10.x/Layer7_API_PlatformUpdate_64bit_v10.X-CentOS-2021-06-22.L7P?token=PB-5V4XNV8IKtBrXCCvq4OqYBVawyOmy4kuCK-8PPFUDzKZQi0KY4GwFgRA1095WunT094sewNVwQO53BWYm9SaK2lx-qvFTgyWGhV_ofmKCMWoLnUwYV5jkftulFebX9Gyur4-D1L0wEObXAe5pPKBOMSMn6dqMhW7rYWLMvDUhnxnZ-JTG1DFanj41PH5823wHOj7N6X36kFIV2vCxhiIJw==-PR'
