403 Forbidden error code "Unauthorised" message on GenerateToken request

I get this error message on generating a Power BI embed token (according to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/embedtoken/reports_generatetokeningroup) but I get this vague error message. This request works for some accounts but this error seems to only occur for accounts with an internal domain e-mail address instead of an omicrosoft e-mail address.

 

Error message in Postman below:

How could I get this to work? Any help regarding this issue would be greatly appreciated.
