Still trying to delete stories


#1

I have 5 bearer tokens to play with. I have used each one to DELETE stories from a card on a board at https://app.asana.com/0/727446585486058/756102822043247 all to no avail.

The response I’m getting to each of these bearer tokens is

{"errors":[{"message":"Access denied","help":"For more information on API status codes and how to handle them, read the docs on errors: https://asana.com/developers/documentation/getting-started/errors"}]}

Is there anything else I should try?

And there are only 30 stories

Hi @Bruce_Axtens, sorry that you’re having this issue. My guess is that you don’t have access to delete those stories. While you can read all stories on a task (assuming you have access to the task), you can only delete stories that you have create. You can see this in the web product by hovering the cursor over a story. An “X” will appear on the right side if you have access to delete it.

The only way to delete other users’ stories via the API is with a Service Account (i.e. an enterprise admin PAT).
