When adding an access method in the API:
error": {
code": 400,

The error will occur because the device is not properly configured as an access device.

If you view the device in the GUI, you will see the following:

If you use the API to get the device list, you will see the following:
{ "deviceId": "2001",
deviceName": "AD - lvntest000356",

deviceGroupMembership": [],
typeAccess": "f",
typePassword": "t",
typeA2A": "f",
