When you create bot password, have you checked the following items under the “Applicable
l Edit existing pages<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ListGrants#editpage>
l Edit protected
(If you would
like also edit pages with protection, and you have the permission to do so)

Subject: [Wikidata-tech] problem with bot test edits
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I really do not know where to ask
When I try to make some test edits in the main instance with my recently accepted bot, I
receive the message: "permissiondenied: You do not have the permissions needed to
carry out this action." I am logged in with my User@bot-username and my bot-password
and use Wikibase-CLI.
What do I do wrong?
Thank you very much! Cheers, Eva
