Access denied. You must have write or admin access.


Dear atlassian community, i'am currently developing a plugin with Python which extract data  (payload) about developers activity on repositories (push, pull requests) from bitbucket using webhooks. In my python script , i am trying to access to the patch and diffstat url's (Bitbucket API)  content to extract data about files changes.

here example of the url's:

But when the repository is private i cant access to the content of these web pages. If in the owner change private to public everything is okey but he can't change it for privacy so my question is how can access to these url's in my python script using the authentication? How can i authenticate via the script python knowing that i have write access on the repository? 

thank you,

And that service account is full access.
