Reading roles inside a rule

Hey guys;

My goal is to assign an initial role to a user on first login. I want to find the appropriate role’s id so I want to fetch the list of all roles and then get the id of the target role for assignment to the user.

I’m getting the following error when I try to call getRoles:
Unhandled rejection APIError: {"statusCode":403,"error":"Forbidden","message":"Insufficient scope, expected any of: read:roles","errorCode":"insufficient_scope"}

  var ManagementClient = require('auth0@2.17.0').ManagementClient;
  var management = new ManagementClient({
    token: auth0.accessToken,
    domain: auth0.domain

      management.getRoles().then(function (roles) {
        console.log('roles', roles);

Any pointers appreciated :slight_smile:

Hi @ryantomaselli,

You will need to get an access token using a client credentials grant if you want to access any scopes other than read:users or update:users.

As mentioned at the bottom of this doc.

Let me know if you need more help with this.
