Identity API - Get User Information Missing Fields

New Community Member
Posted on

Hi everyone, 

I've been using the Identity API to allow users to log in to my website in a sandbox environment. I need to be able to distinguish between personal and business accounts and need access to the account_type field for each user.

However, when I send a request to, I receive information besides the account_type field, though my application is set up to return that information (Account Type is selected under Advanced Settings and I include in my scope when generating an access token). 

The documentation here states that it is possible to access this information, but I'm unable to access it through my request. 

I'm looking for some help to gain access to the account_type field. 

Thank you!
