Validate An Access Token

Access code have an expire date, but they can also be deleted prematurely if your service revokes it or by user action. If you'd like your service to check whether an access code is still valid you can send it to us for verification. You may want to do this in order to see if you need to obtain a new one for a user or possibly to check if the user has invalidated the access code. We conform to the standard OAuth method for accessing resources. The resource in this instance is "ping".



Example Request for access_token value of "K67PfD34ygbbaHw2NBmo3prM6USimn5Z01PXxBLOQrXoThScA6G7mS6Zw4sq3PJN":
