->add(new AuthenticationMiddleware($this))

        // Add authorization **after** authentication
        ->add(new AuthorizationMiddleware($this, [
            'unauthorizedHandler' => [
                'className' => CheckAccess::class,
                'url' => [
                    'controller' => 'Accounts',
                    'action' => 'login'
                'queryParam' => 'redirect',
                'exceptions' => [

        ->add(new RequestAuthorizationMiddleware())

$service = new AuthenticationService();
$fields = [
IdentifierInterface::CREDENTIAL_USERNAME => ‘email’,
IdentifierInterface::CREDENTIAL_PASSWORD => ‘password’
‘unauthenticatedRedirect’ => Router::url([‘prefix’ => false, ‘plugin’ => null, ‘controller’ => ‘Accounts’, ‘action’ => ‘login’]),
‘queryParam’ => ‘redirect’,
if (strpos($request->getPath(), ‘/api’) === 0) {


        $service->loadAuthenticator('Authentication.Jwt', [
            'secretKey' => file_get_contents(CONFIG . 'jwt.pem'),
            'algorithm' => 'RS256',
            'returnPayload' => false

        return $service;


Ok So I am here @daryl . So you are using Authentication and Authorization plugin and do some some configuration in middleware side right. Right now whats going on man when you send request from Post-man with POST method then Authorization plugin execute silently and it restrict POST request, not even POST request it has been restricting the PUT,DELETE and HEAD Request too…Except GET Request. The Solution is that here you have to set this $this->Authorization->skipAuthorization(); method into particular method or you set it into beforeFilter method.

    $this->Authentication->addUnauthenticatedActions(['index', 'view']);
    if (in_array($this->request->getParam('action'), ['index', 'view'])) {

I hope it will help you and fix your issue
