    The issue is dynamic config. I could run a hundred and manually config them. I am trying to build something that is more dynamic. Allows for a user to come and go without manual intervention. It seems the advisor account type might be the path. It allows one login across multiple accounts owned by others. Never seen that through the API but TWS and the REST API have it. I can change a dropdown in TWS to use a different account so I know it works and exists. I may use the gateway in that way but a REST API is more appealing from a coding perspective and appears to be the future for IB API access.
