Adding labels and API scope and 403 response

We are working on an add-on with the following scopes in atlassian-connect.json:

  "scopes": [

When we try to add labels like this:{
        url: `/wiki/rest/api/content/${pageId}/label`,
        headers: {
          //'X-Atlassian-Token': 'nocheck',
          'Accept': 'application/json',
          'Content-Type': 'application/json'
        json: [ 
              "prefix": "global",
              "name": "testlabel"
      }, function(error, httpResponse, body) {
        if (error) {
          hlogger.error('labels error', {pageId: pageId, error: error});
          // throw
        console.log(' successful:', typeof(body), body);

We get a response back like:

>HTTP Status 403 – Forbidden
Request not in an authorized API scope</p><p><b>Description</b> The server understood the request but refuses to authorize it.

According to the documentation ( ), the scope should be "WRITE", and our add-on has this scope.

Any help in adding a label to Confluence content?

Classic mistake: Use Confluence url’s without the leading /wiki!
