Hey @kompal.sithta ,

403 error means that  user is not an owner on the specified workspace

Hello @kompal.sithta ,

Just adding to Fabio's response, for the List users in a workspace  endpoint the 403 error can be returned in the following scenarios : 

  • You are not an Admin of the workspace in question
    • In order to get the list of members in a workspace through the API request, you need to be an Admin of the said workspace. 
  • The credentials you are using are lacking privileges :
    • To authenticate the API request, you will need to use the bitbucket account username along with an app password. For that particular API endpoint, the app password is required to have at least account:read permission selected.

Thank you, @kompal.sithta !
