I was working in my sandbox environment trying to figure out the Chatter API calls - I had saved my refresh token during my testing but it was lost sometime later.

Now when I try to hit the API I am receiving the following error:

"expired access/refresh token"

How do I get around this now? I do not have a refresh token so I cannot make a request to refresh my token, and I'm not sure how to expire/delete/ revoke it via the UI so that I can proceed with my testing.

my cUrl call is as follows:

curl

    --form client_id=3MVG92.u...2KycWe

    --form client_secret=668...930

    --form grant_type=password

    --form username=mike....com

    --form password=*#()@*#[email protected]

    --proxy 127.0.0.1:3128 --insecure

  https://test.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token 

Things I have tried:

  • Reset my password
  • Delete remote access and create a new one with new client_id / secret
  • Reset my security token

Does anyone know how to expire the token or get a new refresh token via the API or UI in Salesforce?

In order to reverse access from the UI, click on the following in the menu at the top right of Salesforce: 

Your Name | Setup | My Personal Information | Personal Information and clicking Deny

More info here: https://na12.salesforce.com/help/doc/en/remoteaccess_about.htm

What scope are you using? If you specify a scope (like 'api'), you'll need to explicitly request a refresh token by also specifying 'refresh token' in your scope (space delimited). More info on scopes here:https://na12.salesforce.com/help/doc/en/remoteaccess_oauth_scopes.htm

You'll need to use 'https://code.google.com/oauthplayground/' as your callback URL in your app configuration.
