Register Webhooks via REST with non-admin-access token

I am wondering is that possible to register(create) a webhook via REST API when the user-account (who send the request) doesn't have admin access?

In general, What if I ask permission for some scopes during login, user accepts it, but those permissions were not provided by his admin.

example: I asked for manage:jira-webhook, but user doesn't belong to site-admins access group.

Hi @Hosein Nourani ,

if you are logged in to Jira and you are using GUI, you can manage webhooks only if you are Jira administrator. I haven’t test this, but I expect the permissions will be the same for the REST API. So I don’t it is possible.

Thanks Hana.
So, is that true to say

for creating the webhook via my OAuth2 app, I need a user with admin access level to login?

Thanks Hana. I’ll try it.
