App Token - Perform Actions as Users

I am using "App Token" in my application and got the error "The request requires higher privileges than provided by the access token." when trying to rename a folder.

 

I cannot find the option "Perform Actions as Users" in App Token configuration like in OAuth with JWT.

 

Can I rename folders using "App Token"?

 

Thanks,

Hi @nycmhej,

 

Unfortunately not. App token auth is meant specifically for use with Box embed, and has a restricted number of endpoints that it allows you to make calls to. I'd recommend switching to a JWT auth type, which will allow you to customize the scopes / permissions that you need for the application.
