Not authorized to see the chat messages

Description
Hi,
I’m trying to view the chat messages of the user using the following api.
/chat/users/{userId}/messages
My URL looks like this.
https://api.zoom.us/v2/chat/users/brichey%40fdfdods.com/messages?to_contact=ss%40fdfdods.com&page_size=50&date=2020-07-22&next_page_token=
I’m using a user managed App. The user that created the credentials (client id and password) has admin privilidges.
I get the following response.
Unauthorized request. You do not have permission to access this user’s chat messages.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
Al

Error
Unauthorized request. You do not have permission to access this user’s chat messages.

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?
OAuth

Which Endpoint/s?
/chat/users/{userId}/messages

this doesn’t help. I’m having a different issue.

Hey @aaghili,

Since the Chat message APIs are user level, you can only access the persons messages who has authorized your app.

Has the user you are trying to get their messages installed your app?

Thanks,
Tommy

ok. So that won’t work for us. Is there a plan to move the chat api to the account level api’s?

Hey @aaghili,

Yes, we are planning to release account level chat APIs sometime later this year. (Timing that is subject to change.)
