Hello, 

I am trying to translate the actions inside https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/oauth2/

to grab the refresh token and or the access token.

 

I have crafted my API and it works firing off a request with a pre worked out authorisation bearer. but obviously this only lasts 60 minutes before you need to get a new access token.

 

I spent a few days researching and trying to do this myself but kept coming up short.

 

I noticed there was a similar post 

which looks to be using OAuthv1 methods and an article 

https://platform.zapier.com/docs/oauth

But still with all of this information I was unable to understand how to create the tokens.

Anyone able to assist me in this please? 

 

Thanks in advance

Hey @KristianL, welcome to the Community!

This section of our developer platform gives details of how to access and refresh tokens via OAuth v2: 

Add Access Token Request and Refresh Token Request URLs

Hopefully that will help to point you in the right direction! :)

Hi follow this way, make sure you are passing same parameters as it is, your token will be refreshed

Solved it. There was a zapier developer section. I was looking in the normal section and thats what confused me :).
