Using the Account Object
If the authenticated user exists in an Reseller or Enterprise account and there are more subaccounts available, you can create an Account object. If the authenticated user is a Core account, you can retrieve Account object attributes.
Retrieving an Account Object
Retrieve an Account object by the unique properties ID or PartnerKey, with more properties available for filtering.
Embedded Partner Usage
For Embedded partners, the PartnerKey property allows an external identifier to be associated with the account. PartnerKey cannot be updated on once the Account is created, so we recommend using CustomerKey instead.
