Hi,

I found this URL that shows how refresh token. However, it does not work for me
https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_rest.meta/api_rest/intro_understanding_refresh_token_oauth.htm

There are my request entries:
endpoint: https://test.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token
grant_type: refresh_token,
client_id :
CLIENT_ID,
client_secret: CLIENT_SECRET,
 refresh_token: my_last_token,
 format :

During the authentication,
you exchanged code with accesstoken and refresh token
see fifth point on the following page  https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_rest.meta/api_rest/intro_understanding_web_server_oauth_flow.htm

you should use refresh token instead of the expired token that was recieved along with the access token.

Hi,
when you first request for an access token, you are provided with an access token and a refresh token.
use the following scenario:
endpoint: https://test.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token
grant_type: refresh_token,
client_id : <PUT_YOUR_CLIENT_ID_HERE>,
client_secret: <PUT_YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET_HERE>,
 refresh_token: <PUT_YOUR_REFRESH_TOKEN_HERE>,
 format : json

Here grant-type should contain text: 'refresh_token'
in refresh token, value should be the actual refresh token not the last access token
