Issue with running migrations and insufficient permissions error in Sanity.io

Just starting out with Sanity. I’m trying to run a migration (to update all the dates in one type of documents. When I try and run the migration with:
sanity exec migrations/myFile.js --with-user-token
I get an error:

node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:936
  throw err;
  ^

Error: Cannot find module '../../util/requireContext'
Require stack:
- /Users/cmv/Sites/sanity/node_modules/@sanity/core/lib/actions/exec/requireContext.js
-
...
Any help? I guess I’m not 100% sure how I set up authentication correctly.

That seems to have fixed the error … thanks!

I get a different one now, but I suspect that’s my fault:
ClientError: the mutation(s) failed: Insufficient permissions; permission "update" required

Yeah that seems like you might not be logged in with a user that has enough permissions (or not for this project, at least)

I am the only user on this project though. 🙂 I just set it up locally and have been poking around at things. I’m not sure why I wouldn’t be able to make changes to documents via migrations (I can via Studio).

Hi, I'm using sanityClient and I'm trying to make a patch and gives me the same error about the permissions for "update". I have the token for Editor role, so can't figured out what's happening.
