Accessing private board data

I am working on a personal application which requires me to retrieve the lists of a specific board I have chosen so that I can later perform operations on those lists. However I am unable to GET the list data from private boards.

To access public boards in the past I have been able to get away with not using my API Key and Token. However, if I do this with private boards I am told I do not have authorisation to access this data.

When using the following GET request: I receive the following error: 

Cannot GET /1/boards/xxx/lists/&key=xxx&token=xxx

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When looking at your GET request, I think the format is no ok.  Try this:

So, no slash after lists, but a ? before the first parameter.  You can also check the docs here:

and look at the cURL code example.

Rookie mistake, thanks!!
