What's the difference between a user and Collection token?

  • User token: the results of your requests will be based on the level of authorization associated with the user whose token you're using. The user token is an extension of the permissions within your web app. The only endpoint that's different than the web app permissions is the Analytics API. In the web app, the Knowledge tab within the Analytics section can be viewed by users who have Author access to that content. For our API Analytics, because there is the event activity to all users, you must be an Admin to get access to that endpoint.

  • Collection token: results of GET requests will only return results from the Collection associated with your token.
