Get User Info documentation incorrect

The documentation for “Get User Info” (https://auth0.com/docs/api/authentication?shell#get-user-info) states:

This endpoint will work only if openid was granted as a scope for the Access Token.

And the example response implies you will get the user’s full profile. In fact, you only get sub. Additional scopes are necessary to get the full profile (e.g., scope: "openid email").

I’m new to the platform (and somewhat new to OAuth2), and this took me about 2 hours to figure out.

Hopefully this can help get the documentation improved!

Hey @jbailey, I wanted to follow up since this documentation appears to have been updated since you last posted and I wanted to see how you felt about about the doc in its current state. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you in advance!

Looks good to me, thanks for asking.
