Master Account APIs vs. Account level APIs

What is the difference between Master Account APIs and the API that uses account:read:admin scope?

For instance, how does the account level API for list recordings /accounts/{accountId}/recordings differ from Master Account API /v2/accounts/{accountId}/recordings?

If the account level API /accounts/{accountId}/recordings is called with the accountId set to ‘me’ and master account token, does it only return recordings for the master account and none of the sub accounts?

Please help clarify when to use one vs. other.

It will be helpful to get more clarification. Trying to understand how the APIs behave when master account token is used for one vs. the other.

Hey @snp,

The Master Account APIs allow a Master Account to manage Sub Accounts utilizing the Master Account’s API Key/Secret.

Let me know if that clears things up.
