Hi @swapnilbaxi,

I’ll urge to you check your Nginx Error Logs, the error will most certainly be logged there. Once it’s logged there it will be a more specific one rather than just Generic 400 Error.

Once you have the specific error you can further troubleshoot what’s going on. Until tell it’s just some shots in the dark.

If you are unable to find a solution once you have the errors from the Nginx Error_log, you can post them here, we’ll try to help out!
