Set up the refresh token exchange
As the access_token will expire in a short time, the App will need to frequently request a new one using the refresh_token. This must be done while the refresh_token itself is still valid.
To exchange for a fresh access_token, make a POST request to the token endpoint (more details found in the API documentation):
https://api.snyk.io/oauth2/token
with the following properties in a x-www-form-urlencoded formatted request body:
grant_type=refresh_token
&refresh_token=(refresh token from the previous step)
&client_id=(clientId from the app creation),
&client_secret=(clientSecret from the app creation)
The response to this call provides a new access_token, refresh_token, and expiry for each.
Be sure to store the new refresh_token, as the old one is now invalid.
