Bitbucket API throws 'You must have write or admin access' when search for PRs

When looking for PRs with API:



bitbucket returns 403 with `Access denied. You must have write or admin access.` error.


Any ideas what can be the cause?

Hi @Sergey Sokolov

Sorry for the late response.
Does the authenticated user has access to the repository?


I was able to figure it our. Request was done not to the repo I thought, so when I checked rights everything looked good.

All in all it is a bit strange that searching for PRs requires write access.

Like Ahmad Ilham likes this

When I figured out which repository was giving the error I just added write access to the user

@edi.abdullah , udah dapet caranya belum ? gw juga kayak ginii hahahah

@Ahmad Ilham  udeh itu tinggal tambahin write access nya ke branch tujuan.

@edi.abdullah  saya udh tambahin write access app password, tpi slalu minta akses admin, gimna tuh bang?

@Juan Daniellihat di branch setting nya bang, di sana ada beberapa pengaturan write access nya nah di situ siapa aja yang bisa ditambahin.
