RefreshToken Some OAuth 2.0 services such as Google API supports RefreshToken so when AccessToken expires you can request new AccessToken without going through manual authorization screen (login screen) again.
AccessToken AccessToken for authenticated REST API calls. This token is included along with each secure call you make to OAuth enabled REST API (Usually via Authorization Header. e.g. Authorization: Bearer xxxxxxxxxxxx). Some OAuth services such as Google expires AccessToken in short time (e.g. 1 hour) and some services such as Facebook has long lasting token (e.g. 60 days). Read your OAuth provider API documentation to learn more. If API supports renewing token then this connection manager will do automatically for you.
