I need to update my app to support new OAuth code flow with PKCE/scopes and new short-lived tokens. For code flow with PKCE and scopes I see there is the new method "DBClientsManager.authorizeFromControllerV2:...". But, where I can find a tutorial or an example about using and refreshing short-lived tokens? I don't know which method to call, when call it and how to manage the response.
I have read:
- example app DBRoulette
- this forum
but I found nothing.
Please help, thank you.

Wow, good news 🙂 I'll try it as soon as possible.
Greg, thank you very much for your prompt answer.
PS: maybe you should add a clarification to the documentation 🙂
I have made the described changes to the DBRoulette example app. And it doesn't automatically handle the refresh token. Perhaps I am doing something wrong. But once the short lived token has expired it gives a 401 with an expired_access_token error.
Perhaps you could update the example.
@eweb I'll ask the team to update the DBRoulette example. I can't promise exactly when that would be done though, so in the meantime perhaps you can share what you have so far and I can take a look at see what the issue might be.
@eweb I tried this out, and it's working successfully for me. Even after the initial short-lived access token expires, the SDK automatically uses the stored refresh token to get a new short-lived access token and then uses that to successfully make further API calls, without having to report 'expired_access_token' back to the app's code.
Did you perhaps process the app authorization flow before switching from authorizeFromController to authorizeFromControllerV2 and so only had a short-lived access token stored, but not a refresh token? You can unlink the client and then re-authorize with authorizeFromControllerV2 in that case.
