In the password grant type, the user provides their resource server credentials (username/password) to the client, which sends across an access token request to the API management. This grant type is ideally used when the request is generated from a reliable source.

After configuring the  OAuth Token End Point policy, provide the following parameters in the Postman and click the Send button to get the access token:

  • Method: POST.
  • URL: Project proxy URL.
  • Query Parameters:
    • grant_type: Password.
    • form-urlencoded parameters:
      • username: The resource owner username.
      • password: The resource owner password.
    • client_id: Specify consumer key generated in client subscription.
    • client_secret: Specify consumer secret generated in client subscription.

      Sample request


After receiving the access token, refer the Accessing protected resources using Access Token section to see how to access protected resources.
