Transfer from Coinbase Fiat account to Coinbase Pro account returns "forbidden"


I am trying to call
POST /deposits/coinbase-account on the sandbox
profile_id: ‘c7c6266b-069b-4d4b-…’,
amount: ‘1’,
coinbase_account_id: ‘0c5f97db-80f4-5e06-’, (coinbase standard fiat account)
currency: ‘EUR’

but I receive “forbidden” as a response.
The API key is allowed to View/Trade/Transfer and all other (i.e. createOder) are working perfectly.

Any idea why I am unable to transfer from standard to pro?

Hi @joshmer.briones .

Thanks for your response. I figured out why the system was complaining.
I tried to transfer funds from the Coinbase standard fiat account to a non-default pro portfolio (which is not directly possible).
That wasn’t clear from the API documentation.

We recommend that you post this in the Feedback Section of the Forum as most new features and improvements to Coinbase come directly from feedback like yours, so it’s very valuable to us. Thank you!
