Getting "Insufficient permission for that call" error despite a valid KiteConnect API subscription..

hpoxps edited October 2020 in .Net API client
Hi Sujith,

We have a valid KiteConnect subscription, but when placing an order using the Kite .NET API, I am getting this error, "Insufficient permission for that call" . I have made sure that the Zerodha Client Id that is used to initiate the Login flow is the same one that is authorized for the API in console.

Incidentally, I am able to get the holdings and positions without any problems.

Here is the code:
var h = kite.GetHoldings();

var o = kite.PlaceOrder(
Exchange: Constants.EXCHANGE_NSE,
TradingSymbol: "KOLTEPATIL",
TransactionType: Constants.TRANSACTION_TYPE_BUY,
Quantity: 1,
Product: Constants.PRODUCT_NRML,
OrderType: Constants.ORDER_TYPE_MARKET,
Validity: Constants.VALIDITY_DAY,
Variety: Constants.VARIETY_AMO);

Here are the requests/responses:

    Please don't paste app or client-specific details on the public threads, it can be misused. If you ever need to share session or client-specific details then use the private message feature on the forum.
    You seem to have created an app for masses, you need to use Kite Publisher to place orders. For more information, please write to compliance at kiteconnect(at) someone from the team will get back to you.

    Hi even i am getting the same error while fetching historical data. The rest of things are working fine. I have a valid subscription for kite connect api as well as historical data.
  • rakeshr
    You can go through Historical Data FAQs for insufficient permission call.

    Working since next day. I guess api access works after the day from starting subscription
  • sujith
    One has to re-generate the access token after subscribing for an add-on.
