Workers always fails with auth error 10000

Hi, I have managed to get some Pages working, but when I try to create any Worker - be it template or manually created from the tutorial, I always get an error when running wrangler dev

Error while creating remote dev session: ParseError: A request to the Cloudflare API (/accounts/xxx/workers/subdomain/edge-preview) failed


    notes: [ { text: 'Authentication error [code: 10000]' } ],

I’ve never managed to get a Worker working. Any ideas?

I have managed to create a worker using the Cloudflare dashboard.

Quite confused now…

I am still not able to create a worker from my desktop - I always get a 10000 auth error.

Makes it impossible to proceed. Can anybody help?

What’s the output of wrangler whoami and what Wrangler version is this?

Thanks for the help in Discord! I recreated my API token using the “Edit Cloudflare Workers” template as you suggested, and it is now working.

Hi! Could you explain in more detail how you solved it, please? I’ve tried generating a token there and providing it to wrangler1 with the wrangler config command but that didn’t help. On wrangler2, I keep getting this 10000 error every time I run wrangler dev

Nevermind, it turned out that I was lacking Cloudflare Workers Admin permission
