I'm interacting with a custom APEX service which obviously requires OAuth authentication. I can easily authenticate and authorize my application. Everything works fine.

However, the access token I receive tends to expire.

Of course, I can refresh it by sending a refresh_token. Sounds great.

The problem is I don't receive a refresh_token in a response from SalesForce.

I do send requests to [instance], I also tried to using, but I cannot find 'refresh_token' in the response. There's everything apart from it there!

To solve this, you could try by adding 'refresh_token' to the scope when retrieving an auth code.


Check Selected OAuth Scopes section which is required to be enabled in order to perform requests on your behalf at any time in order to get the refresh token.
