This API call removes all existing access grants associated with the selected entity from the Registration service. This permanently removes all access tokens, all refresh tokens, and all refresh secrets associated with the entity.

The intention is to invalidate sessions that are associated with the selected entity, and force the user to sign in again at the point the client attempts to use any of the access grants for that entity. Any access token stored in a browser or mobile application, any refresh token stored on a server or refresh secret generated in a mobile application is invalidated and cannot be used again.

Note that this endpoint does not remove access grants that may be managed by other services, such as Single Sign-On.

This endpoint requires a client with the owner, direct_access, access_issuer, or login_client feature.

This endpoint uses the following methods:

  • POST



Deleting access grants for a record

Running Code Samples Using Postman

The Janrain REST API code samples are written using Curl, but they can easily be run from within Postman. To use one of our code samples in Postman:

  1. Click the Copy to Clipboard button located directly beneath the code sample
  2. In Postman, click Import to display the Import dialog box.
  3. In the Import dialog box, click Paste Raw Text, and then paste in the copied code. The Import dialog box should look similar to this:

  4. Click Import, and the Curl command will be converted to a format that can be run from within Postman. All you need to do now is configure the command to work with your Janrain implementation.
