Trouble querying the User collection

I am having a problem querying my user collection. Users need to be able to access other users' data on the system, and I can't make a successful request to query the user database. My app is written with Angular, but whether I make my query with the REST API or the Angular API, I get the following error:

{"error":"IndirectCollectionAccessDisallowed","description":"Please use the appropriate API to access this collection for this app backend","debug":"You cannot access the user collection through the appdata API"}

The Angular code I am using to make this call looks like this:

var query = new Kinvey.Query();


var queryPromise = $kinvey.DataStore.find('user', query);

queryPromise.then(function(response) {

// Handle the successful response

}, function(error) {

// Handle the error: Continually fails with error mentioned in post


Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated!

So I answered my own question. I can't query the user datastore through `$kinvey.DataStore()`. In fact, that line should be changed to:

var queryPromise = $kinvey.User.find(query);
