In OAuth, how to get the access_token value from localstore file in Freshchat?

We are facing an issue related to the freshchat app, how to get the access_token value from localstore file and I want to display access_token value in my Freshchat app.

I had read the freshchat OAuth documentation but it isn’t mentioned how to retrieve access_token value in documentation.

how to fix that issue. Is there any way to get access_token from localstore file?

Hi @mirza_has,
Welcome to the community.

access_token is sensitive information provided by the third party for authentication and it wouldn’t be advisable to show the value on the settings page.

Once the OAuth handshake is successful, the token is used by the app for sending along with the request wherever asked to.
For eg. isOAuth: true and headers = { Authorization: "bearer <%= access_token %>"}, Substitution of the token value is internally taken care by the platform.

Sample app references:
