In the Azure build pipeline task “Prepare Analysis Configuration” we suddenly started getting a 403 error when it attempts to download the quality profile

However, the pipeline has not changed in a long time, and the URL indicated in the error message is totally valid and gives a 200 response in the browser when I am logged in to SonarCloud. Is there something else that might have changed? I’ve checked the usual suspects (Service Connection, Azure DevOps token) but they all appear valid and in order.

Sigh… Always double-check your double checks. The Service Connection claimed it was valid, but I generated a new token and a new Service Connection and things are working normally.
