Refresh Token Grant Type

Use this grant type when you want a refresh token issued along with the access token. The refresh token is used to obtain a new access token without requiring the user to reauthenticate.

To refresh a token, the access token must have been requested with a grant type that supports refresh tokens, such as Authorization Code, Resource Owner Password Credentials, and Assertion. A request is then made to the token endpoint with the grant_type parameter set to refresh_token.


This grant type does not influence authorization flows.
