HubSpot Connection Permissions Error


If you are attempting to connect your HubSpot account and receive an error that you don't have sufficient permission to link the account (Fig. 1), there are a couple of things to check.



Figure 1: HubSpot Integration Permissions Error

First, be sure that you have administrative access to the HubSpot portal you're attempting to connect. Authorizing API access to the Hub is a process reserved for users with elevated access inside of HubSpot. Most of the time, this shouldn't be a problem.

The most frequent cause of this error is that the HubSpot account you're attempting to connect is ineligible for API authorization. Free and Basic HubSpot Marketing accounts are not able to authorize third-parties to access data on their behalf via the API, which is required to implement a reporting tool like Dasheroo. HubSpot has more information about the necessary subscription tiers available in their developer documentation. For reference, the scopes required to connect your HubSpot portal to Dasheroo are contacts, automation, reports, content, and business-intelligence.

Unfortunately, if this is the case, there's nothing we can do to help. The subscription requirements for API access are established by HubSpot. 


If neither of the scenarios above are applicable in your case, or if you have additional questions, please contact Dasheroo support through the in-app help, submitting a help request, or emailing
