API dns_records error 10000 Authentication Error

I’m trying to do some DNS stuff via the API but I’ve hit a road block at the basic hello world level.

I have created an API token with the permissions “All zones - Zone:Read, DNS:Read”

I can verify the token exists like so:

curl -X GET "https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/user/tokens/verify" \
     -H "Authorization: Bearer <APITOKEN>" \
     -H "Content-Type:application/json"

I get the response “This API Token is valid and active”.

When I try to query my dns entries like so:

curl -X GET "https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/zones/<ZONEID>/dns_records?type=A&name=<DOMAIN>&content=" \
     -H "X-Auth-Email: <EMAIL>" \
     -H "X-Auth-Key: <APITOKEN>" \
     -H "Content-Type: application/json"

I get: {“success”:false,“errors”:[{“code”:10000,“message”:“Authentication error”}]}

I copied the zone id from right side panel of my domain page on cloudflare and the domain and email are correct. I have also tried using various combinations of my global API key and using the “Authorization: Bearer” header, these either produce the same authentication error or “There was an unknown error.”

I copied these commands straight out of the documentation so I’m not really sure what to do.
