ERROR 401 - rest_cannot_edit_others - Connect GSheet to WordPress



I have an error (Data Status 401, rest_cannot_edit_others, Message: Sorry, you are not allowed to create posts as this user.) when i try to Save and Send the test request of my task. My trigger is a new row in google sheets and my second action is the creation of a post on wordpress.

I am sure that I am allowed to create post as this user because the user I am using is the Admin.
Don't find any help on this subject.
I am using the plug-in WP REST API on wordpress by WP REST API Team

Thanks for your help

Hi @jruwet,

The issue appears to be related to the absence of the Basic Auth Plugin in your WordPress account. Please follow the steps provided in the attached thread and watch the accompanying video to install the Basic Auth Plugin. If you have already installed the "Mini Orange" plugin, please ensure to remove that plugin before installing the "Basic Auth" Plugin.
