I would like to retrieve all properties of an Automation at Child Business Unit.

When I run this SOAP Call, with a Child Business Unit MID, I get all properties for active Automations but of the Parent Business Unit.

Fuel oauth tokens are MID specific. When you retrieve your fuel Oauth to add to your soap request, be sure to include account_id, the MID of your child BU, in the Json payload of the request. The account_id value will be your child BU's MID.

Some documentation found here:


The last portion, Refresh Access Token, contains the JSON payload and properties required.
