Rest API permissions missing for the administrator user in Free version


I am an administrator user and I am trying to access information about project and issues through REST API. However, when I ask about my permissions I am getting information that I do not have permissions to browse projects.


    "permissions": {
        "BROWSE_PROJECTS": {
            "name""Browse Projects",
            "description""Ability to browse projects and the issues within them.",
        "EDIT_ISSUES": {
            "name""Edit Issues",
            "description""Ability to edit issues.",

I can open an issue, but I cannot view it then.

Do I need to set some additional permissions to be able to use Rest API, or maybe it is not available in the free plan?

Problem resolved. It was a Postman issue - The permissions call did not properly inherit the authorisation data. My fault.
