Generate Refresh Token

  1. Update below URL with your TenantID and ClientID and paste the url on browser

    https://login.microsoftonline.com/<TenantID>/oauth2/authorize?response_type=code&prompt=login&redirect_uri=https://www.google.com/&client_id=<ClientID>

    Follow on screen authentication process and once authentication is complete you will get response back on the browser address bar.

    The response will look like this:

    https://www.google.com/?code=\<AuthCode>&session_state=\<SessionState>

    AuthCode is set of alphanumeric character of length ~750 chars. Copy the auth code for future use.

  2. Create postman collection as below:

URL: `https://login.microsoftonline.com/<TenantID>/oauth2/token`

client_id: <Client ID>

grant_type: authorization_code

code: <Auth code copied in above step>

redirect_uri: https://www.google.com/

resource: https://servicebus.azure.net
