I am trying to setup an auto post from my site to publish events to a facebook closed group automatically.
First I setup the closed group and a facebook app (type website). The app works fine for facebook connect.
Then I installed SNAP and configured the group URL and the app ID & secret.
Authenticated my user without a hitch.
But submitting a test post fails with the following error:
(#200) Insufficient permission to post to target on behalf of the viewer
I don’t get it, my user is allowed to post in the closed group.
For test purposes I created a new open group and I get the same error.
Do I need to add more permissions to the app in order to do this?
Currently only email, public_profile and user_friends are active. I did not submit the app since I only need it for login and posting, nothing else.
And since I am authenticating my own FB user I thought that should be enough.
Any help is greatly appreciated.July 15, 2015 at 2:13 am #450330BenParticipant
I’m having same problem
Trying to send test post and get this:
[Error] => Permissions error
Array ( [Warning] => [Error] => Permissions error )August 6, 2015 at 8:58 am #454055EvgenyParticipant
Array ( [Warning] => [Error] => Permissions error )

with the exact same error-message.
It just works fine for a running fb-page.
Now I wanted to change it to a fb-group (in which I am admin of course), but get this permission-error.
Do I have to set up a new fb-app for that?
Or why am I not authorized?

You need to use numeric group URL and you need to re-authorize every time you are changing the value of the Facebook URL field.August 31, 2015 at 1:50 am #457292RandizeParticipant
I use numeric group URL, it works for public group but close group is giving me this error:
[Error] [FB – XXX] – -=ERROR=- Array ( [Warning] => [Error] => Permissions error )
Anyone can get their SNAP post to closed group?August 31, 2015 at 10:39 am #457336AndyParticipant
I have exactly the same problem. This problem started like 15 minutes ago. I only use numeric group ids and I reauthorized every sigle FB account. i can post into my group, but not into groups where I am not the admin.September 7, 2015 at 3:25 am #458491jeromeParticipant
