403 ForbiddenException (Python SDK)

Hi everyone,
I’m currently using pinecone to build a qa retrieval conversational agent; pretty standard stuff.

However, I’m receiving the above exception even when running pinecone.list_indexes().
I ensured my API key and environment is correct, even to the extent of creating a new one. I noticed my indexes page also says failed to load indexes constantly.


ForbiddenException: (403)
Reason: Forbidden
HTTP response headers: HTTPHeaderDict({‘date’: ‘Tue, 22 Aug 2023 13:02:53 GMT’, ‘server’: ‘envoy’, ‘Content-Length’: ‘0’, ‘Via’: ‘1.1 google’, ‘Alt-Svc’: ‘h3=“:443”; ma=2592000,h3-29=“:443”; ma=2592000’})

Any suggestions on fixes?
