Within Salesforce Marketing Cloud (ExactTarget), when accessing the BusinessRule object via the SOAP API, I am getting a permission denied error. I possess the unmodified and original roles for: Admin, Marketing Cloud Admin, Marketing Cloud Security Admin.

This are what I cannot access:

I have tested using a web app integration possessing all scopes, and and I have also tested using username and password directly also. Are there secret restrictions on the aforementioned objects/endpoints? I have made sure I have the permissions detailed in the documentation.

I could be wrong, but only Salesforce support can access and update the business rules in a Marketing Cloud account. It makes sense to me since every change in the business rules has a big impact on the MC account.

In case, you are curious about available business rules then HERE is what Adam Spriggs found and shared.
