How to change/modify the refresh token format in OAM 12c (in order to have same format like in OAM 11g) ?


as per  36.4 About OAuth Tokens :

Refresh tokens carry the information necessary to get a new access token. In other words, whenever an access token is required to access a specific resource, a client may use a refresh token to get a new access token issued by the authentication server. Common use cases include getting new access tokens after old ones have expired, or getting access to a new resource for the first time. Refresh tokens can also expire but are rather long-lived.


 as per 36.4.2 OAuth Refresh Tokens :

 The refresh token is used when the access token is no longer valid. Refresh tokens are generated only for Resource Owner Credentials and Authorization code flow.
