JS errors

While adding new projects with Visual Studio Online, I received an error.

Error adding webhook to VSO repository: Forbidden
It also comes with Javascript errors:
POST https://ci.appveyor.com/api/projects 500 (Internal Server Error)

I tried revoking privileges and restarting, but this didnt help.
Does this mean there are in fact server problems or is it something I've done wrong?

    I actually found out I was using an account which didnt have full acces/rights. A co-worker logged in with his VSO account and it worked.

    Well I have got my project loaded now as intended and everything works fine. But like I said, with my co-workers account. I assume it has something to do with my rights on VSO.

    Im almost done testing a build here. After, I will try to reproduce the problem. And see what the differences are with rights on VSO. Maybe that could shed some light on the problem.

    This is the error I got trying with my own VSO account.

    It seems to be indeed 'forbidden' for my VSO account. Weird that it gives js errors though. Seeing internal server error made me think it was not a VSO problem.

    What was the missing permission on VSO side?

    Guess I found it:

    From: https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/get-started/integrate/integrating-with-service-hooks-vs
    'By default, only project administrators have these permissions.'

    After looking into the project settings, it indeed seems to be the problem:
