2263786 - HTTP Error Code 403: Forbidden-No Permission error for OData API call

Symptom

Able to query some of the entities using Odata API but for some entities it throws below error message-

PermissionError(1).jpg

Environment

Successfactors

Reproducing the Issue

Query the API Entity using a very simple Odata query like below and you will receive the same error message in response.

https://apiX.successfactors.com:443/odata/v2/<EntityName>

Cause

Some permissions are missing.

Resolution

First thing we need to confirm is that whether the entity you are facing issues with is an MDF Entity.

Now in case it is an MDF Entity, please make sure it has below permissions along with the other API access permisions because MDF Objects need these special permissions.
