Refresh Token?

Hi,

 

Can someone help me find this refresh token?

I need it for PayPal Express Checkout Server-side REST implementation. It's used to generate an access token.

 

Thanks!

Re: Refresh Token?

Hi,

Details on authentication via REST API are available here : https://developer.paypal.com/docs/api/overview/#authentication-and-authorization

Once you have requested an access token, cache the OAuth access token and re-use it to avoid rate-limiting -- https://developer.paypal.com/docs/rate-limiting/

Was my post helpful? If so, please give me a kudos!

Re: Refresh Token?

Justin,

 

Not sure I follow.

 

How does one exchange the old access token for a new one after it expires? Typically with OAuth2 you'd receive a refresh_token when you initially authenticate (and then use that to get an updated access token), but I'm not seeing any mention of how to get the refresh_token in the docs.

 

Could you please shed more light on that process and the endpoint(s) we should hit to make it happen?
