Receiving Error post OAuth authentication


We use Oauth api in our application to authorize and collect a token using which customer payments are received onto the merchant account. This was working without any problem for a long time in production.
Today when we tried to re-authorize, after entering square credentials, we get the error “Only the business owner can authorize applications for this square account”.

Any idea what changed ? I am positive that square credentials given for authorization are correct.


:wave: Did your employee permissions change? Only administrators with full permissions and account owners are allowed to authorize applications. :slightly_smiling_face:

As the error implied, we were trying to authorize with a non-owner account of square. Thank you for the reply.
