Global Navigation of Publishing Site is not accessible. When I access _api/navigation/MenuState?menuNodeKey=&mapProviderName=%27GlobalNavigationSwitchableProvider%27

I receive the following exception Microsoft.SharePoint.Navigation.REST.NavigationServiceException. I used the same user on another team site, there I received no error. Can't figure out what is the issue?

This API should work fine in Publishing site.

You need to access the Publishing site to check if the global navigation is displayed correct.
