It looks okay, assuming you've got a valid URL in there too.  Dump the response. What's the full error?

<cfdump var="#cfhttp#">

If you dump the cfhttp scope there has to be more information than just an error.  What's the url? Just xxxx out the company name if needed.

There can be all sorts of reasons for a 400 error. So we need more information.

I understand. Developers can't always disclose url's (or other info). But you can always replace anything confidential/proprietary with psuedo values like "xxx" or "abcxyz.com".  It's a pretty common practice.  Often times (though not always) it's enough to help others diagnose the problem.

While I do appreciate the points :) , unfortunately I wasn't able to answer your question. So IMO, I would delete this question and have your points refunded, rather than archiving an unanswered question in the PAQ's.  If you choose to do that, I wouldn't be offended. Just use the "Request Attention" link in the 1st post, and the moderators will assist with it shortly.

Cheers.
