Token Request

Oauth Token Request

You must request the token from OAuth as follows. You will need to provide

  • client_id
  • client_secret

These can be obtained via the eDRV Dashboard > API page.

const request = require('request');

const options = {
  method: 'POST',
  url: 'https://auth.edrv.io/oauth/token',
  headers: {
    'content-type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded',
  },
  form: {
    grant_type: 'client_credentials',
    client_id: 'S4BTj2Kx8Oe75y64J2QeQ2j2oR1CeDRV',
    client_secret:
      'kLaqFRcvB8AbvRVa1pOgFkkO3j_abeN9D2sf2w79Z4Hb2URfdcNybpRigak0de',
    audience: 'https://api.edrv.io',
  },
  json:true
};

request(options, function (error, response, body) {
  if (error) throw new Error(error);
  let access_token = body.access_token;
  console.log(access_token);
});
{
    "access_token": "YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN",
    "expires_in": 86400,
    "token_type": "Bearer",
    "scope": "read:x write:y",
}

Please grab the "access_token" above and set it within your application. You will use it to authenticate all API calls to eDRV.

Token Expiry

The eDRV token is automatically set to expire. The expiry time (in seconds) is included in the response via the expires_in key.

Once the token is expired, all the API's calls will return the following response with http status code 401[Unauthorized].

{
    "ok": false,
    "message": "jwt expired",
    "result": null
}

Your application should request a new token from eDRV, refer to the Oauth Token Request section in this page for creating a new oauth token request.

❗️

Never give your Access Token to a third party

Your Access Token can give access to your private Charge Station data and should be treated like a password.
