Access Denied

When I try to change the driver for one of my devices in the SmartThings Groovy IDE, I get this message “Access Denied
We’re sorry, but you are not authorized to perform the requested operation”
I have previously changed drivers for the same type of device (door sensor) without problems, but now I just get this message.
What can I do?

IDE is in the process of being shut down. Many of the features have been disabled such as editing Device Haandlers; adding device handlers, adding smartapps, live logging, sunrise/sunset, etc.

If it was a device with Placeholder as the device type you were trying to change… you can’t!

best advice - switch your device to an Edge driver or if it was already using an Edge driver… don’t try to modify in IDE. You can manage those in the ST app, CLI or


Thank you very much I will try to look into it
