Python Question

Unclear on making an API call after authentication?

However, I am not sure what to do afterwards. I am trying to use their User management API, which I am suppose to make a call to:

https://{Egnyte Domain}

However, how do i use their token for a requests.get call to their api?
Below is my python code, I am using the the Requests Module (

import requests

api_key = 'MY_API_KEY'
username = 'myUserName'
password = 'myPassword'

payload = {

'client_id': api_key,
'username': username,
'password': password

token ="https://{Egnyte Domain}", params = payload)

print r.text

The response I get is:
