Failed to add team member with error: You must be a member of the team to add members

Hi Team,

Adding user to a team failed for one of our mutual customers with error:
As it is not feasible for admin to be a member of all the teams is there any way admin can add users to a team,
without being a member of the team.

Response:
{“errors”:[{“error”:“only_team_members_can_add_members”,“message”:“You must be a member of the team to add members”,“user_message”:“You must be a member of the team to add members”,“help”:“For more information on API status codes and how to handle them, read the docs on errors.”}]}

What are you using for identification? A Personal Access Token? A service token?

We are using Oauth Bearer token, as mentioned here: https://developers.asana.com/docs/#oauth

No, there’s no way to override the Asana permissions level via the API.

Thanks Phil.
