Using bot to send direct message


Getting 403 on bot account with admin privilage when sending direct message

Steps to reproduce

When using a api call using the access token of the bot to post a private message it will give the following
“id”: “api.context.permissions.app_error”,
“message”: “You do not have the appropriate permissions”,
“detailed_error”: “”,
“request_id”: “q9jut5b97i8fx8jokrnq5in3ea”,
“status_code”: 403

Expected behavior

The was given all the permissions that can be given and it is still unable to create a direct message

Does anyone have a solution for this or an explanation why this is happening?

Could this help
