How long do access tokens have before they expire?

When a user is authenticated with OAUTH 2.0 and an access token is granted how long does this access token have until it is expired?

Hi @murphey_lawe,

 

All access token varieties in Box (OAuth 2, JWT, developer token, downscoped token) will expire after an hour. For OAuth 2 when you get an access token an expires_in parameter will come back as well, which will give you exact timing on expiration. Once expired, an access token can be refreshed for a new token that will live for another hour period.
