API: User does not have access to the global dimension for this request

Hello 

I am having trouble finding a solution for the Unauthorized Global Dimension. I am trying to make the following API request 

 

{
	"rsid": "xxxx",
	"globalFilters": [
		{
			"type": "dateRange",
			"dateRange": "2022-03-20T00:00:00.000/2022-03-21T00:00:00.000"
		}
	],
	"metricContainer": {
		"metrics": [
			{
				"columnId": "0",
				"id": "metrics/visits"
			}
		]
	},
	"dimension": "variables/pageeventvar3",
	"settings": {
		"limit": 100,
		"page": 0
	}
}

 

 But I have errors 

 

"columnErrors": [
			{
				"columnId": "0",
				"errorCode": "unauthorized_dimension_global",
				"errorId": "57b087e6-5bdb-4c9a-a0be-08d42e91bb8d",
				"errorDescription": "User does not have access to the global dimension for this request"
			}
		]

 

 
I am not sure about the errors as I made sure I have Auto-include: on for dimensions and metrics of my API profile. 
Any ideas on how to resolve this?

What report/dimnesion are you trying to run? pev3 (pageeventvar3) is no longer used as far as I know.

I am trying to report the metric visits on the dimension full Entry Page URL. 
I tried on several other custom dimensions and I am still getting the same error...

Are you capturing page URL in any prop? Then perhaps you can use the entry prop dimension.
