How to trigger Start signal event using REST-API

Hi all,

I am starting a process through start signal event and I have followed the following way:

I am using this API http://localhost:8080/activiti-app/api/runtime/signals Post Method along with the  body 

{  "signalName":"StartSignal" }

I have referred this documentation 

Activiti User Guide 

But I'm getting 403 exceptions when I try to trigger the start signal event. 

can anyone suggest me if I am going wrong somewhere or is there any other way to do this or any other documentation to refer please suggest.

thanks in advance

If you are using APS its probably a permissions issue. Caller has to have "Access the REST API" capabilities since the endpoint is an Engine Rest endpoint.
