Log In with PayPal User Attributes

The table below maps the Log In with PayPal user information categories that you selected when you created your application to the values you pass to the scope field. The scope field sets the access privileges of the access token. The value passed must always include openid at minimum, and then you add to it the scope values for the user attributes that you would like to view. Pass the scope values in a URL encoded, space-separated, case-sensitive list, for example, scope='openid profile email'.
