I'm working with an Aeries installation and have been granted access to the OneRoster API for a test database on their system. 

I get 401 codes back when trying to get a bearer token. I have double confirmed I have the client id & client secret right.

Would that happen if I don't have access to the default database?

Is there a way to specify a database name in the query when getting a token?

All I have found is how to specify a different year with the DatabaseYear parameter, but nothing about specifying a test database.

Any thoughts or guidance would help, thanks

Working with a "Test" database requires that the district configure a new Aeries URL that points to that database.  They must also adjust their oAuth configuration in that database to know about that new URL.  There is no way to identify a specific database through the OneRoster API.
