The Kopo Kopo API requires an OAuth access token for you to interact with it. When developing on the sandbox, you may take a ‘shortcut’ and generate an access token without having to make an API call to generate one.
NB: This is during development only in the Kopo Kopo sandbox.
Generate an API access token from the sandbox
To sign up for a sandbox account, visit https://sandbox.kopokopo.com/applications.
Press the create token button located beneath an application to generate a token that is issued to that application.
Important: Keep in mind that Kopo Kopo’s implementation of the OAuth 2.0 standard uses short-lived access tokens. The access token will expire 2 hours after it’s generated and you will have to generate a new one. Eventually, you’ll need to implement a refresh strategy.
