Revoke an access token

Revoking an access token consists of the authorization server invalidating the token for all purposes. If, for example, a user indicates to a client that they no longer want the client to have access to something, the client can request the associated token be revoked.

These code snippets enable the client to call a management endpoint to revoke the specified access token.

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.
