How to get refresh token from old acess tokent

Hi,

My old accounts Aceess token’s are expired, I want to refresh it using
refreshtoken API
which you provided but I have one issue that I don’t have refreshtoken of
that my old accounts, how to get that which API should I use?

Okay, so my understanding is that you have the following items:

  • client ID
  • client secret
  • an authorisation code

is this correct?

-J

Hi there,

To request a new access token, you should simply be able to use the
initial authorisation
code https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/oauth#the-authorisation-request, as
outlined here:

https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/oauth#refreshing-the-access-token

Hope this helps,

Actually I have to refresh my tokens
I have authorization code but not refresh tokens of my old accounts
which is required for refreshing access token’sOn 9 December 2013 17:15, Jonathan Barrett jonathan@freeagent.com wrote:

Hi Vikas,

If you haven’t stored an authorisation code for the account you’re trying
to access, you’ll need to re-authorise your application against that
account, as detailed in the docs:

https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/oauth#the-authorisation-request

Once you have that, you can retrieve an access token as usual, and
subsequently refresh that token with the authorisation code as required.

Okay, gotcha. Well, in that case, you need to get an authorisation code.
This involves making a request to the app using your ID and secret, and
then logging into the app using the username and password of the freeagent
account you want access to. This will then return an authorisation code
which you can use to get access tokens for making requests for that account.

This process is detailed in the developer documentation:
https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/oauth#the-authorisation-request

Hope this helps,

Ok, but I didn’t get this bold part, how to do "re-authorise your
application against that accoun"

If you haven’t stored an authorization code for the account you’re trying
to access, you’ll need to re-authorise your application against that
account
, as detailed in the docs:On 9 December 2013 17:23, Jonathan Barrett jonathan@freeagent.com wrote:

Hi Vikas,

Ah, I see the confusion here: the “refresh token” is the authorisation
code. From the docshttps://dev.freeagent.com/docs/oauth#refreshing-the-access-token
:

To refresh an access token, the app makes an HTTP Basic Auth POST to the

FreeAgent Token Endpoint https://api.freeagent.com/v2/token_endpointusing the Client ID as the username and Client Secret as the password and
including the following in the POST body:

  • grant_type=refresh_token (required)

  • refresh_token (required) the authorisation code received earlier

Hope this helps,

Hi Vikas,

Ah, I see the confusion here: the “refresh token” is the authorisation
code. From the docshttps://dev.freeagent.com/docs/oauth#refreshing-the-access-token
:

To refresh an access token, the app makes an HTTP Basic Auth POST to the

FreeAgent Token Endpoint https://api.freeagent.com/v2/token_endpointusing the Client ID as the username and Client Secret as the password and
including the following in the POST body:

  • grant_type=refresh_token (required)

  • refresh_token (required) the authorisation code received earlier

Hope this helps,

Hi Vikas,

If you haven’t stored an authorisation code for the account you’re trying
to access, you’ll need to re-authorise your application against that
account, as detailed in the docs:

https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/oauth#the-authorisation-request

Once you have that, you can retrieve an access token as usual, and
subsequently refresh that token with the authorisation code as required.

Hi Vikas,

The point of the OAuth system is that applications need to gain the
explicit consent of the account owner before they can access data. In
essence, you’re asking if it’s possible to access your client’s data
without them authorising your app to do so. The answer is no: you’ll need
to get someone there to explicitly allow access to their data.

If this is an app for a single client (and not one where anyone can set up
an account, for example), then your client may be happy to create a
FreeAgent user for you which is dedicated to API access. You could then use
this account to authorise your app.

Cheers,

Really thanks for your help, but I am a developer and didn’t know my
client’s username/password so need to get authorization code without
re-authorizing it is it any way for this?

On 9 December 2013 17:44, Jonathan Barrett jonathan@freeagent.com wrote:

Okay, gotcha. Well, in that case, you need to get an authorisation code.
This involves making a request to the app using your ID and secret, and
then logging into the app using the username and password of the freeagent
account you want access to. This will then return an authorisation code
which you can use to get access tokens for making requests for that account.

This process is detailed in the developer documentation:
https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/oauth#the-authorisation-request

Hope this helps,
