Hooks - “Unauthorized extensibility point”



Hi there, I have a Post User Registration created but I’m not able to get it working, it always returns

{ “message”: “Unauthorized
extensibility point”, “statusCode”:
500, “stack”: "Error: Unauthorized
extensibility point\n at
Object.is_authorized… }

I have re-created the hook several times without any luck, I also see this messages in the logs:

1:56:30 PM: requested role for stage development
1:56:30 PM: finished webtask request 1491393390546.984659 with HTTP 200 in 275ms
1:56:36 PM: new webtask request 1491393396901.456320
1:56:36 PM: finished webtask request 1491393396901.456320 with HTTP 200 in 15ms
1:56:36 PM: requested role for stage - release

My current code is:

module.exports = function (user, context, cb) {

Can you please help?
PS: I’ve tried the run button and doing an actual registration both cases having the same results.


This is a known issue in the Hooks editor. We are currently working on a fix, however the hooks should still execute as expected. You can test it by using the Real-time Webtask Logs extension, and performing a sign up. I tested using your script, and see the following in my logs.



Is this normal?,


Can you try logging out, clearing cookies, and re-logging in?


I’m also receiving this error with the exact code?

Does the Webtask Editor not work?

Error is as follows, on both registration and pressing the run button:
