User not authorized to perform that action

I am getting an unauthorized error when attempting to view user page views while using a token generated from my admin account.

 

The error is: "user not authorized to perform that action"

 

The following API call produces the error:

curl https://<institution>.instructure.com/api/v1/users/:userid/page_views \

-X GET \

-H 'Authorization: Bearer :admin_token'

 

However, a call to "self" works:

curl https://<institution>.instructure.com/api/v1/users/self/page_views \

-X GET \

-H 'Authorization: Bearer :admin_token'

 

What are the permissions needed to view other users' page views?
