Get external users via APIAnswered

curl https://api.box.com/2.0/users?user_type=external -H "Authorization: Bearer "
My app is authorized for all the possible access types:
- Read all files and folders stored in Box
- Read and write all files and folders stored in Box

- Admin can make calls on behalf of Users
- Enable integrations
- Manage users

- Generate Tokens
