I found we need refresh token for renewing access token for REST API. But i couldn't find refresh token in response of my request. How can I get refresh token.Here is my code in PHP.
$postData = array( 'grant_type' => 'password', 'client_id' => 'my_client_id', 'client_secret' => 'my_client_secret', 'username' => 'my_admin_username', 'password' => 'my_admin_password+security token' ); $token_url = 'https://cs57.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token'; $curl = curl_init(); curl_setopt_array($curl, array( CURLOPT_HEADER => false, CURLOPT_URL => $token_url, CURLAUTH_ANY => true, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true, CURLOPT_POST => true, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => $postData )); $json_response = curl_exec($curl); $status = curl_getinfo($curl, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE); $response = json_decode($json_response,true); print_r($response); curl_close($curl);
And the response I get is
Array ( [access_token] => my token [instance_url] => https://cs57.salesforce.com [id] => https://test.salesforce.com/id/00D0k0000000Xu2EAE/0057F000000q8KFQAY [token_type] => Bearer [issued_at] => 1503288742327 [signature] => wt/b1QFLd8EJmIx6Max8rW2xmovdj3q/onMdKfExAqo= )
As per the salesforce docs I should get refresh token also. But why I am not getting it. Or do I miss something here?
It seems like, I asked a very dump question. I was following ' username-password authentication flow ' and the doc clearly says
" This OAuth authentication flow passes the user’s credentials back and forth. Use this authentication flow only when necessary. No refresh token is issued. "
