Usage of /access-tokens/exchange POST


Creates an access token with equivalent scopes for an account, but in a different context.

For security reasons it is not possible for a single access_token to permit access to both public and private team data on Stack Overflow. Use this method to avoid having to authenticate a user twice.

The only supported conversion type is team_for_public, which takes an access_token with the access_team and creates new access_tokens with access to public Stack Overflow.

{accessTokens} can contain up to 20 access tokens, all of which must have the same access_team scope. These are obtained by authenticating a user using OAuth 2.0.

This method returns a list of exchanged_access_tokens.
