OAuth 2.0 token revocation endpoint
1. Revoking obtained access and refresh tokens
Clients can notify the Connect2id server that a previously obtained refresh or access token is no longer needed. This is done by making a request to the token revocation endpoint, as specified in RFC 7009. The server will invalidate the specified token and, if applicable, other tokens based on the same authorisation grant.
2. The token revocation endpoint URL
The token revocation endpoint URL can be obtained from the server discovery endpoint:
3. Client authentication
Unless they are public, clients must authenticate to the server with their registered credentials, such as client secret, in order to make a token revocation request.
