Authentication Type - Token With Refresh Token

Authorise DataChannel to connect to your data source using an Access token to access the API and a Refresh token to refresh this Access token.


To use this authentication mechanism you will need to run an OAuth2 flow and note the following:

  • Refresh Token

  • Refresh Token URL

  • Access and Refresh Token types

  • Refresh Request method

You only need to run the OAuth2 flow once (to access various tokens etc.), after which DataChannel takes care of refreshing the access token.


  1. Give a unique name to your credentials.

    rest credentials tokenwithrefreshtoken
  2. Enter the Refresh Token [This will be used to refresh the expired Access token].

  3. Enter the Access and Refresh Token Type (Default : bearer)

  4. Enter the Type of the Refresh Request method - GET or POST in the Refresh Request Type dropdown.

  5. Click Save once you have entered the above details.
