I am able to get the "code" in my redirect Url but unable to get access token.

I tried sending POST request using POSTMAN and also from java code but "invalid_grant" error i got.

Response {"error_description":"invalid authorization code","error":"invalid_grant"}

HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
        PostMethod post = new PostMethod("https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token");
        post.setParameter("grant_type", "authorization_code");
        post.setParameter("client_id", "MASKED");
        post.setParameter("client_secret", "MASKED");
        post.setParameter("redirect_uri", "https://www.facebook.com/");
        post.setParameter("code", "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx");

What I am missing in the above code ?

  • Sure, I forgot to remove secret key. @Eric I have gone through the Failed refresh of access tokens on some accounts question before posting this but the solution mentioned did not help me.

  • One more thing I want to add : I am able to get access token using CURL command where grant_type=password

    Check my answer here and test it out as it works properly. Then refactor to get what you want testing to see where you break it if at all.. salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/83913/…

Instead of "https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token" your should send your request to "https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/authorize" so your code should look like

HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
        PostMethod post = new PostMethod("https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/authorize");
        post.setParameter("grant_type", "authorization_code");
        post.setParameter("client_id", "MASKED");
        post.setParameter("client_secret", "MASKED");
        post.setParameter("redirect_uri", "https://www.facebook.com/");
        post.setParameter("code", "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx");
