Altering tenant texts - SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication - 403 Forbidden

I would like to change some standard tenant texts regarding self registration. For doing so I followed this instruction provided by SAP:

First I executed the GET-Request which provided some changed tenant texts (at least due to the documentation, no idea how I was able to do it)

Thereafter I tried to do a POST-Request like it is explained in the documentation. I used Advanced Rest Client by Chrome

Unfortunately I always get "403 Forbidden".

Don't know what I do wrong. It's the same user which has every permission I could find in the admin console. Everything else is equivalent to the documentation.

Advanced Rest Client looks like this:

(Autherization value is whitened)

Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Issue is resolved.
The error message was/is misleading and part of the documentation (Request Example) is wrong.

Tha data part must not close with a "\n" tag.
In our case this caused the error.
Removing the tag was all we had to do to get this thing working.

Dear Sebastian,

Please be informed that I tested customizing the texts. I received "403 Forbidden" error as well, when instead of a System user, I used my own Adminstrator user.

Could you please verify if you used a system user in your scenario?

Just in case you do not have a System added as an administrator to your tenant, please find below the Help portal link which describes how you can create one.

Good luck!
