To retrieve your access_token you’ll need to send a POST to your KeyCloak instance at

POST /auth/realms/contegix/protocol/openid-connect/token

Fetch bearer token

Status Codes:

In the body of your POST request, you’ll want to include x-www-form-urlencoded params grant_type and client_id as well as your username and password.

Sample POST request body:

  "username": "jdoe",
  "password": "abc123",
  "grant_type": "password",
  "client_id" "ab-portal"

You’ll receive a response that contains the access_token which can be used as a Bearer token for further requests.

Sample response:

 "access_token": "eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsInR5...",
 "expires_in": 900,
 "refresh_expires_in": 900,
 "refresh_token": "eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsInR5...",
 "token_type": "bearer",
 "not-before-policy": 0,
 "session_state": "a2eb241b-b130-4f02-8de1-10f5ffb70909"

With your access_token set the following header for future API requests.

Authorization: Bearer <access_token_value>

You can preserve and refresh your session without needing to reauthenticate by sending the refresh_token from above to the same POST endpoint like so:

 "refresh_token": "eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsInR5...",
 "grant_type": "refresh_token",
 "client_id": "ab-portal"
