Scopes

Scopes provide access to a specific set of HubSpot API endpoints and the associated data from a HubSpot account. If you created a private app, you can specify which scopes your app has access to in your private app settings. If you're developing a public app, you'll configure both required and optional scopes that users who install your app will be prompted to authorize via the app's install URL.

Find required scopes for an endpoint

Any scopes required to make a request to a specific endpoint will be listed under the Requirements section in the endpoint documentation, which can be accessed by clicking the Endpoints tab in an API reference article.

Some scopes may list both Standard and Granular scopes. If both scope types are listed, you should opt for using the granular scopes when possible, as they specify more explicit access for your API requests.
