How can I generate an auth_token with send_message scope?

I am trying to create a Java application that will be sending messages after some process finishes. According to design, the application provides a list of failed data which can contain 1000+ data rows. Therefore sending just a notification is not the case for me.

I decided that I will use file sharing using /v2/room/{room_id_or_name}/share/file call.

This call should be done with send_message scope but I can't find how to make it.

Could someone please help me with that?

I am using Postman to send messages to /v2/room/{room_id_or_name}/share/file but I always receive 

"error": {
"code": 401,
"message": "Authenticated requests only. See for more information.",
"type": "Unauthorized"
