Revoke a grant request

If an authorized client no longer needs access to protected resources, the client can revoke the corresponding grant request.

These code snippets enable a client to revoke (cancel) a grant that it was previously issued. When a grant request is revoked, the request is placed into a finalized state and no further updates to the grant are allowed.

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.
