/revokeToken: Revoke Token

  • URL:https://[root]/oauth2/revokeToken(POST only)

Example usage

URL for Revoke Token


The Revoke Token operation (POST only, HTTPS only) invalidates OAuth2 access or refresh token. Applications can use this endpoint when a user signs out of the app so that no abandoned tokens are left valid.

An access token is issued from implicit grant and a refresh token can be revoked with this operation. When a refresh token is revoked, all access tokens generated from the refresh token will also be revoked. Revoking an app access token and tokens generated from generate token are not supported with this operation. A success response will be returned revoking either an invalid, expired token or of an unsupported type to prevent leaking information about the passed-in token.

Supported values: access_token | refresh_token
