    Hi there,

    This is mainly an issue with who the access token is scoped for. When using a developer token, the token itself will be scoped to the Box account of the developer (you). When you first authenticate with a JWT app, the access token is scoped for the service account of the application. If you want to make a call for a different user, you'll either need to generate a user access token in your JWT app, or make the request with an As-User header
