Error authorizing app with Admin user

I have an OAuth app set up for testing with some account level scopes. I am unable to authorize the app with an Admin user.

You cannot authorize the app.You cannot install the app because you don’t have the required permissions. Please contact your IT administrator for permission and try again.
Error for: View all users’ history and channels (scopes imchat:read:admin, user:read:admin)

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?

Hey @snp,

Hey @snp,

That error means the user installing the app does not have the respective permission:

Please try giving that user permission and let me know if that fixes the issue. :slight_smile:


That was it. Thanks Tommy.
