API Error: Authorization has been denied for this request

So, I wanna make a bot that will update users’ roles. But the problem is that I can’t authorize it. But the only answer I want here is, how would I authorize my account/Bot account? Like passing in my password, username stuff like that.

Please include more information in your post.

  • What platform are you trying to create a bot for?
  • What code have you written that is throwing this error?

Also, make sure you’ve read the support category’s guidelines.


If you are trying to access a roblox domain from inside the engine, please read the documentation on HttpService.

This service is not allowed to send requests to any of the Roblox websites such as www.roblox.com.

The platform is a website. But after I am gonna use my pc console afterwards.
The code is in python, I’m using the Group API v1

https://groups.roblox.com/v1/groups/3937684/users/668670067
(The request)

The api you are using most likely requires your cookie for authentication, so log into the bot account, hit Ctrl + Shift + I to open up inspect element, then go to Application, then Storage, then Cookies, and find https://www.roblox.com, then find the .ROBLOSECURITY cookie. Don’t share the cookie!

Okay, I got the cookie. So how would I pass the cookie in the request?

What HTTP client are you using to send the request? node-fetch? axios?

Check out the docs for the package you are using, the answer will likely be there.

Just a heads-up, you can’t do this internally from a server in Roblox. If you’re using another programming language like Python, here’s how you’d validate a request to https://auth.roblox.com/v1/ externally.

I’m also assuming you know how to pass the headers table and the url link to the request.get parameters:

cookies = {'.ROBLOSECURITY': YOUR_ROBLOX_COOKIE_HERE}
urlHandler = requests.get(url, headers=headers, cookies=cookies)
