Access Denied - Magento

Problem

Some Magento actions fail with "Access Denied".

Example:

Solution

This is caused by the API user not being given enough permissions.

  1. Go to: System -> Web Services -> Users
  2. Look at which "Role" the API user is assigned to.
  3. Go to: System -> Web Services -> Roles then select the role from the previous step.
  4. Make sure  Shopping CartSales, Catalog Inventory and everything in them is selected. Also make sure Catalog > Product > Update is selected.
  5. Click Save Role at the top after making changes.
