Continue a grant request

During a grant request flow, an authorization server can require an individual (typically a client’s end user) to approve the grant by interacting directly with the server. For example, by tapping an Approve button on a web page provided by the auth server.

After the individual approves the grant, the auth server sends the client an interaction reference. The client must send a continuation request containing the reference back to the authorization server to obtain an access token.

These code snippets enable an authorized client to send a grant continuation request to the authorization server.

Before you begin

We recommend creating a wallet account on Rafiki.Money, a test wallet provider that’s part of the Interledger testnet. Creating an account allows you to test your client against the Open Payments API using an ILP-enabled wallet funded with play money.
