Hi erorgan,

I apologize for the delayed response on this one. I wanted to confirm a couple things with our development team.

1. There is an optional ttl parameter on the GET /login call. If you do not use the parameter, the BhRestToken (session) will be valid for 10 minutes by default. See p. 47 of the REST documentation for further reference.

2. The access token is valid for 10 minutes.

3. There is no specific expiration for a refresh token. They are long lived, but can only be used with the original access token it was generated with to gain a new access & refresh token.

The thread is three years old so I just want to double check: Is there now specific expiration for a refresh token?
