Hi Eva,


When you create bot password, have you checked the following items under the “Applicable grants” column?


l  Edit existing pages

l  Edit protected pages (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 instead. 


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
