Following the instructions on this page Working with users, groups, and items—ArcGIS REST API: Users, groups, and content | ArcGIS for Developers I was able build a POST request in POSTMAN  to add a new item to the user.


After getting the token, when I try the POST request to add the web map I get this error


{"error":{"code":403,"messageCode":"GWM_0003","message":"You do not have permissions to access this resource or perform this operation.","details":[]}}



The JSON I used is this:

"layerType": "ArcGISTiledMapServiceLayer",
