Token Endpoints

Django OAuth 2.0 authorization server has a method to register other token endpoints: authorization_server.register_endpoint. Available endpoints for now:

  1. Revocation Endpoint from RFC7009

  2. Introspection Endpoint from RFC7662

Revocation Endpoint

The revocation endpoint for OAuth authorization servers allows clients to notify the authorization server that a previously obtained refresh or access token is no longer needed.

This allows the authorization server to clean up security credentials. A revocation request will invalidate the actual token and, if applicable, other tokens based on the same authorization grant.

For example, a client may request the revocation of a refresh token with the following request:

POST /oauth/revoke HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Authorization: Basic czZCaGRSa3F0MzpnWDFmQmF0M2JW


In Authlib Django OAuth 2.0 provider, we can simply add this feature:

from authlib.integrations.django_oauth2 import RevocationEndpoint
from django.views.decorators.http import require_http_methods

# see Authorization Server chapter

def revoke_token(request):
    return server.create_endpoint_response(RevocationEndpoint.ENDPOINT_NAME, request)

That’s all we need. Add this revoke_token to your routes to enable it. The suggested url path is /oauth/revoke.
