End Point: https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token grant_type=password&client_id=xxxx&client_secret=xxxx&username=xxxx&password=xxxxx


{ id: "" issued_at: "" instance_url: "" signature: "" access_token: "" }


As per the documentation, http://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=remoteaccess_oauth_username_password_flow.htm&language=en_US
"token_type" needs to be included on the response. But it doesn't.

Any help on this is appreciated!

Documentation says:

token_type—Value is Bearer for all responses that include an access token.

Since your response includes access_token your token_type will always be "Bearer". There is no point including it into the response when it will always be the same...

  • Apache-CXF OAuth2 API breaks due to this. It expects token_type value to be on the reponse. Also, I observed some times token_type value is coming from sales force, most of the time it doesn't.
