    It looks like you've selected AppToken Authorization. This type of authentication is only for use with our preview services and has limited API capabilities. The accessible endpoints can be found here: https://developer.box.com/guides/authentication/app-token/endpoints/

    In order to interact with the events API you will need to select a different authentication type.

    Kourtney, will you please be more specific on which kind of auth methods that the Event API support?

    What about JWT?

    Hey Christina! Happy to elaborate here. You can use either Standard OAuth2 or JWT with the events endpoint. The only authentication method that will not work is app token auth.

    Thanks!
    Hope I'm not hijacking the post, but maybe others will find my question related to this helpful;
    I get the same 403 forbidden error while using JWT auth with my application (authenticating via the .json file). However using developer token while trying out the endpoint it goes fine. Using other endpoint with my app also goes fine, but not this one.

    Are you sure about JWT? Or are there any prereqs for this method combined with this endpoint?
