Description (partial)

While trying to send commands to the ASA using the api/cli component, you receive a Command authorization failed message on the response body, even though the x-Auth-Token is working fine with other components and methods.

{response=[Command authorization failed
, Command authorization failed

Using REST API 1.3(2) version on  ASA running 9.8(4)10 code, when using the /cli component, X-Auth-Token does not provide an user even though we can see the privilege as 15 after parsing while running REST API debugs.
