  • Fetch and use access token

    Jonas Erlandsson



    Most API:s require the requests to include an OAuth 2 bearer token also known as an access token.

    Fetch access token

    An access token can be fetch with a HTTP POST request to https://skolid.se/connect/token with the following form values:

    • grant_type = client_credentials
    • client_id = client id received from IST
    • client_secret = client secret received from IST
    • (OPTIONAL) scope = the scopes/apis that should be included in the access token. Leave empty to include all scopes allowed for the client.

    Example CURL:

    curl --location --request POST 'https://skolid.se/connect/token' \
    --form 'grant_type=client_credentials' \
    --form 'client_id=<INSERT CLIENT ID>' \
    --form 'client_secret=<INSERT CLIENT SECRET>'


    Example Response:

        "access_token": "ACCESS_TOKEN",
        "expires_in": 3600,
        "token_type": "Bearer",
        "scope": "skolid.profile"

    Basic Auth can also be used for sending the client id and the client secret in the token request.

    NOTE that the access token is only valid for a limited amount of time, usually an hour.

    Use access token

    An access token is usually included as a bearer token in the requests towards the respective API:s. This is done by using the Authorization HTTP header with the value Bearer <INSERT ACCESS TOKEN>.

    Example CURL:

    curl --location --request GET 'https://api.ist.com/example' \
    --header 'Authorization: Bearer <ACCESS TOKEN>'
