Authorization Scopes

Access GraphQL data that requires authorization with an access token.

Some fields in the GraphQL schema require an authorization scope to be associated with the access token, a JWT generated by the Token Endpoint, used for making the request. The access token’s scopes are determined by the scopes on the API token used.

Currently, the only API tokens that can be generated by Font Awesome account holders from the account page have the scopes public and kits_read. Contact Support if you have a use case that requires accessing fields with other authorization scopes.
