[Koha] Koha API - Authentication Failure

Does the user (owner of the id/secret pair) have privileged access to Koha?
Remember it needs to have permissions to enter the staff interface (the
'catalogue' permission) in order to access routes (other than those in the
/api/v1/public namespace).

BTW: All routes also have some required permissions you should take a look
at. Specific ones.

Kind regards
