Cannot merge pull request with REST API due to a permission problem

I have a master branch with merge permissions being set to only pull request only, with only a handful of users authorized to merge said pull requests.

The problem is that I am trying to automate delivery process, but I cannot merge a pull request into master with the /merge/ endpoint. The error I get is 400 - "merging a pull request requires write on origin and read on fork"

The setups tried are as follows:

1) OAUTH Consumer from the Team repository

2) OAUTH Consumer from my own user (who is explicitly stated that I am able to merge into master)

Now, if I authorize everybody to merge pull requests into master, REST API endpoint works fine. But I cannot leave it at this.

Hi Marcin

Can you share the code you're using so we can have a look?

Have you tried with any of the other authorized users and are getting the same error?

Let us know!
