Receiving error while trying to delete endpoint from API explorer

 



Solution

First step is to verify the operator profiler being used to manage endpoints using API explorer by navigating to Administration->API Services->API Clients

 

 

Here we see API operator profile is being used to manage endpoints. Navigate to Administration->Operator Logins->Profiles. Click on 'Edit' for the appropriate operator profile. In this case, API Operator

 

 

We see that Operator profile: API Operator has full access to manage API clients:

 

 

Apart from this, we also need to verify the permission level granted for this operator profile for "Identity-Endpoints" under Policy Manger

 

 

We see that that this operator profile does not have access to delete endpoint but only has access to read/write endpoints. On changing the permission level to "Read,Write,Delete', we should be able to delete the endpoint using API explorer through this operator profile

 

Tested the same by trying to delete the endpoint and was successful
