Wrangler r2 usage fails when using non-admin tokens

Attempting to put/get an object from R2 with the latest wrangler CLI fails with a 403 status when using a non-admin token for both scoped and non-scoped.

Changing the permissions on the token from non-admin to admin results in a successful operation.

Same here:

✘ [ERROR] Failed to fetch 

when attempting to delete an object with a token with permissions: Object Read & Write

it works when I change perms to Admin Read & Write


To provide some clarity here, what you are describing is a known issue that the R2 team are aware of and are working to resolve in the future.

Foe the time being you can use other supported S3-compatible tools such as rclone, the AWS CLI, or a GUI such as Cyberduck.
