I am trying to use


documented here Canvas LMS REST API Documentation

F.ex. https://ikt.instructure.com/api/v1/users/312/files/quota

Even when I am logged in as an administrator, I get "while(1);{"status":"unauthorized","errors":[{"message":"user not authorized to perform that action"}]}"

My plan was to get an overview of the quota used by all the students to see if we should increase it.

Your syntax for the call would look like this:  


Let me know if this helps.
