Access scope required to use the sections api

76 1 29


I am attempting to use the sections api in my app as described in  However whenever I attempt to access a resource it responds with a 403 forbidden access.  I have tried adding both the write_content and write_themes scope but neither worked.  What access scope do I need in order to be able to access section data via the api?

Hi @Andrew-Corknine 


We've looked into this internally and it does seem to be unavailable at the moment. An issue is open for this, and I'll update here when it's resolved.
