SSPR set password via REST

Hi,
I've been able to configure api calls through REST services to our SSPR server. I can get user status, user challenges and set user password using Postman with Basic Auth.
But I can't get info from another user rather than the one who is making the call. I get the error:

"errorCode": 5027,
"errorMessage": "You do not have permission to perform the requested action."

I can't figure out what kind of permissions the message is asking me to check when I use the 'username' parameter in Postman.

Has anyone experienced with this? Any help will be appreciated.

Re: SSPR set password via REST

Could you please post the code you are using to make the REST call so we
can compare?

Re: SSPR set password via REST

Thanks ab for your quick response and sorry I couldn't answer as I was getting some advance in my testing.
I could finally solve it.
I added the user who was quering to change *another* user's password to the Helpdesk module in the SSPR config *AND* enable the option 'Use proxy connection'
Thanks!

Re: SSPR set password via REST

That makes sense; sharing your results with details will likely help
others who have helpdesk users who do not directly have rights to do big
things like set passwords.
