Getting "not authorized to perform this operation" on droplets

When I’m trying to access 2 of my droplets today, i’m getting this on my drolets dashboard

{“id”: “Forbidden”, “message”: “You are not authorized to perform this operation” }

When I try to launch my droplet console, I get the same message. Thanks for your help!

I faced the same issue today. Relogin solved it.

I ran into this today after I created some new droplets, some of which didn’t have the metric option checked, and it persisted for a few hours on all of my droplets until I signed out and back in, which fixed it. Refreshing the browser alone didn’t seem to help.

Hi! A am facing the same issue. “You are not authorized to perform this operation” in the graph.
