Metrc Error Messages

Modified on Tue, 16 Apr 2024 at 12:40 PM

Metrc error messages are displayed on the API Key Report and the API Key Error cases to provide additional insight. Most Metrc errors can be summarized by "The API key was not provided by an Owner or Manager with sufficient permissions". 


Remember  - Metrc API key permissions mirror the Metrc user permissions. It is best to have the Metrc admin or owner provide the API key.

API Key is valid, however license number XXXXXX is not associated with this Metrc API Key. 
The key is a valid key for a different license, but this license is not associated with that key. The user needs to access Metrc and get the correct API key for that specific license. 
API Key not authorized for Deliveries (CA, MI)The API Key has the proper permissions, but will not provide information about deliveries/transactions if deliveries are made. If the company does not perform deliveries and/or utilize this piece of METRC, then the FI can ignore this API Key Status. The FI user should remove the "Delivery" indicator on the license in the Client Profile page. Removing the indicator will remove the error message.

If the user does have deliveries or other information to provide, the user may need to update the permissions on the key.
