You'll probably have to describe in a bit more detail exactly what you're
doing and where it's failing.  You should be able to do this
programatically, in Java, but you'll need to do it the right way.

The short answer is:
- POST login credentials to /api/tokens and obtain a login token for a user
that already has Administer permissions.
- Use the correct endpoint to set permissions on the user who you want to
have access.
- DELETE to /api/tokens with the token you want to delete.
- POST to /api/tokens with the user creating the sharing profile and obtain
a login token.
- Use that token value to access the endpoint that creates the sharing
