    @pavneet, has been experiencing permission errors with the Amazon Seller Partner API. The suspicion is that it might have something to due with their developer profile, but was hoping to get a second set of eyes on it to see if that is indeed the problem. @Pavneet, would you be able to provide the additional details around your deployment?

The specific error is called out below:
File “/home/pavneet/miniconda3/lib/python3.8/site-packages/sp_api/base/”, line 19, in wrapper
return function(*args, **kwargs)
File “/home/pavneet/miniconda3/lib/python3.8/site-packages/sp_api/api/reports/”, line 113, in create_report
return self._request(kwargs.pop(‘path’), data=kwargs)
File “/home/pavneet/miniconda3/lib/python3.8/site-packages/sp_api/base/”, line 131, in _request
return self._check_response(res, res_no_data)
File “/home/pavneet/miniconda3/lib/python3.8/site-packages/sp_api/base/”, line 146, in _check_response
raise exception(error, headers=res.headers)
sp_api.base.exceptions.SellingApiForbiddenException: [{‘code’: ‘Unauthorized’, ‘message’: ‘Access to the resource is forbidden’, ‘details’: ‘’}]

We are accessing a report that needs the SP API role of brand analytics. Mainly GET_VENDOR_SALES_REPORT .

Hello there! You are receiving this message because none of your fellow community members has stepped in to respond to your topic post. (If you are a community member and you are reading this response, feel free to jump in if you have the answer!) As a result, the Community Assistance Team has been made aware of this topic and will be investigating and responding as quickly as possible.
Some important considerations that will help your to get your issue solved faster:

  • It is best to use our topic creation template; if you haven’t yet, we recommend posting a followup with the requested information. With that information the team will be able to more quickly search for similar issues with connectors and the platform and troubleshoot more quickly your specific question or problem.
  • Make sure to upload the complete log file; a common investigation roadblock is that sometimes the error for the issue happens well before the problem is surfaced to the user, and so having the tail of the log is less useful than having the whole log to scan through.
  • Be as descriptive and specific as possible; when investigating it is extremely valuable to know what steps were taken to encounter the issue, what version of connector / platform / Java / Python / docker / k8s was used, etc. The more context supplied, the quicker the investigation can start on your topic and the faster we can drive towards an answer.
  • We in the Community Assistance Team are glad you’ve made yourself part of our community, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and resolve the problems as quickly as possible. Expect to hear from a specific team member as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Thanks @pavneet9, I suspect these are known issues with this particular connector but I am looking into it and will provide an update later today.
