"Developer Inactive" 403 when using Python API for Traffic stats

Hi,

I’m trying to fetch traffic stats via the Python API, here’s the snippet of code I’m using:

import json
import requests

req_str = """
    {
  "jobName":"Test job",
  "distanceUnit":"KILOMETERS",
  "network": {
    "name": "test",
    "geometry" : {
      "type": "MultiPolygon",
      "coordinates": [
        [
          [
            [19.44305, 51.75612],
            [19.44992, 51.75612],
            [19.44992, 51.75947],
            [19.44305, 51.75947],
            [19.44305, 51.75612]
          ]
        ],
        [
          [
            [19.45011, 51.75789],
            [19.45687, 51.75789],
            [19.45687, 51.75946],
            [19.45011, 51.75946],
            [19.45011, 51.75789]
          ]
        ]
      ]
    },
    "timeZoneId": "Europe/Warsaw",
    "frcs": [
      "0",
      "1",
      "2",
      "3",
      "4",
      "5",
      "6",
      "7",
      "8"
    ],
    "probeSource":"ALL"
 },
  "dateRange": {

    "exclusions":[
      "2015-04-25",
      "2015-04-26"
    ]
  },
  "timeSets":[
    {
      "name":"Monday morning hour",
      "timeGroups":[
        {
          "days":[
            "MON"
          ],
          "times":[
            "7:00-8:00"
          ]
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}
    """
test_req_json = json.loads(req_str)
BASEURL = 'api.tomtom.com'
VERSION = 1
API_KEY = 'my_key_here'
full_url = 'https://{baseurl}/traffic/trafficstats/trafficdensity/{version}?key={apikey}'.format(
baseurl=BASEURL, version=VERSION, apikey=API_KEY)
post_response = requests.post(full_url, json=test_req_json, headers={'Content-Type': 'application/json'})
print(post_response)
print(post_response.content)

I see this response:

<Response [403]>
b'<h1>Developer Inactive</h1>'

I’ve tried this same API key to get Traffic flow, which works:
https://api.tomtom.com/traffic/services/4/flowSegmentData/relative0/10/json?point=52.41072%2C4.84239&unit=KMPH&key=*****
so I don’t think it’s the API key.

The request JSON is also from the example request in the traffic stats documentation:

Can someone help me figure out what I’m doing wrong?

Thanks!

were you given access to this product? Traffic Stats is a different product than Traffic API.
