but getting below error

“403 you do not have access for the attempted action”

Can you please let me know I was missed anything from my side?

Hello @rparthi530 ,

From the details provided by you, it looks like you didn’t get the access correctly. Just to confirm if you are a Biller in the Team account. Biller is not having access to the Team account resources. In this case, you need to contact your Team owner to change your role to member.

The error normally occurs if the specified token doesn’t match with the correct one and it seems like you’ve generated a wrong access token which is required for doctl. I’d suggest to re-navigate to: and generate a token from the “Generate token button” available next to Personal access token section.

As soon as you generate, a token will show up beneath the Token name you specified which you’d need to copy, as it won’t show up again due to security reasons. Once copied, feel free to specify that in doctl.

I hope this helps!
