It looks like you may be trying to use a Utilities object from some external library. Try btoa() instead

Thanks , I already tried and it worked but now as I am using wordpress rest api and tring to Post the blog getting 401 error , as code is all correct donot know what is reason , credentials and endpoints etc all are correct because this was working fine in google app script.

getting this response "

  1. {type: "basic", url: "https://philodendroncare.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts", status: 401, statusText: "Unauthorized", ok: false…}
    1.  type: "basic"
    2.  status: 401
    3.  statusText: "Unauthorized"
    4.  ok: false
    5.  headers: Object
    6.  redirected: false"

 

async  function createBlogPost(title, content, status) {
  var wordpressUrl = "";
  var wordpressUsername = "";
  var wordpressPassword = "";
  
  var authHeader = 'Basic ' + btoa(wordpressUsername + ':' + wordpressPassword);
  
  // Create the blog post payload
  var postPayload = {
    title: title,
    content: content,
    status: status
  };

  // Convert the payload to JSON
  var payloadJson = JSON.stringify(postPayload);

  // Make an HTTP POST request to create the blog post
  var url = wordpressUrl + "/wp/v2/posts";
  
  var options = {
    method: "post",
    headers: {
      'Authorization': authHeader,
      'Content-Type': 'application/json'
    },
    body: payloadJson
  };

  await remoteFetchAsync(url, options)
    .then(response => {
        console.log(response)
      if (response.ok) {
        return response.json();
      } else {
        throw new Error("Error creating blog post. Status code: " + response.status);
      }
    })
    .then(data => {
      var postId = data.id;
      console.log("Blog post created with ID: " + postId);
    })
    .catch(error => {
      console.error(error.message);
    });
}

// Example usage
var title = "New Blog Post";
var content = "This is the content of the blog post.";
var status = "publish";

 await createBlogPost(title, content, status);

 

 

btoa() has some nuances that may be returning the wrong auth header. It accepts a “string” where each character represents an 8-bit byte – if you pass a string containing characters that can’t be represented in 8 bits, it will probably break
