Token that doesnt expire

Post by paperboy11 »

Hey we heavily use your API and have to constantly generate new access and rest tokens. We are looking for a way for our account to stop expiring those tokens so they can be permanent and used indefinitely. Is this possible?

Hi there,

We do require updated access tokens and it is not possible to use permanent authorization. I recommend taking a look at http://bullhorn.github.io/Getting-Started-with-REST/ and utilizing a refresh token to generate a new access token.

I am using ping before every REST API call to check the expiry time and then I use Refresh Token as suggested to get a new access token and re-login.
