Error when attempting to authorize access from OAuth2 API

Hi, I followed the guide located here: https://developers.samsara.com/docs/oauth-20 to set up an OAuth2 API. When attempting to login using the authorization code workflow, I get the error "Error: not authorized to create custom role". A colleague of mine who has full admin access doesn't get this error. What should be done to resolve this? My account has developer access, which should be having READ access on all endpoints.
