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.
