Change User Scope

You can enable, disable, or provide limited API access with User Scope. To enable access to APIs, set User Scope to All. To prevent a Moderator or Admin from making calls to any of your APIs, set User Scope to None. For limited access, set User Scope to Analytics, Search, or Content. The following table summarizes scopes and the usage.

After the table is the procedure explaining how you can assign a scope to a user.
