Refreshing access tokens
A client app may need to exchange refresh tokens for access tokens after the old access tokens have expired or to get access to a new resource for the first time. To do so, it can send a request to the token endpoint.
To exchange a refresh token for an access token, a client app should send a request to the following endpoint:
POST https://oauth.akamai.com/v1/token HTTP/1.1 Authorization: Basic <client-id>,<client-secret> Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded grant_type=refresh_token&refresh_token=<refresh-token>
- The grant type must be set to
- The refresh token previously issued to the client.
The response to the refresh token grant is the same as when issuing an access token.
