I need to fetch an attribute file from the chef service...
Using the REST API, I call
GET /organizations/NAME/cookbooks/NAME/VERSION
And among other things I get:
I tried to fetch the file using the url given (either directly, or using the same signature schema as other REST api calls), but it doesn't work, I get a 403.
FYI that URL expires after a certain time (see Expires=1444350260 in the 
URL). I think by default it’s valid for an hour. Anyway, you need to make the 
GET to the cookbooks API each time and extract the URL.
I tried getting it immediately and it didn't work. Am I supposed to pass some credentials to it? Using the REST signature schema did not work.

Alternatively, I suppose you could find the access key and talk to the 
bookshelf service like s3, but that’s probably not a very good idea.
I'm running my own server, though it IS in aws, I'm not using s3 or anything similar. Does my chef server think that I'm trying to get a community recipe? the recipe resides in my server only.
What is the meaning of the URL if it's not to fetch the file? How do I fetch the file? Is there a different REST api call that will give me the file directly (since I know everything else about it)
