Authorization Code Grant

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.52, last modified on April 18, 2024

The OpenID Connect ID Token is retrieved in almost the same way as an OAuth 2.0 access token when you use Implicit and Authorization Code grants.

When the Authorization Code grant connect flow is used, the resource owner first provides access, then an authorization code is sent to the client through browser redirect. The client then uses it to get an access token. Optionally, a refresh token is also sent.
