Can I change the body of /access_token request during the authorization code flow?

Hi every body,

I’ve try to generate automatically an access_token with authorization_code flow in Postman.
For that I use the option authorization > Oauth2.0 > Authorization Code.

All my parameters are correct and I can genarate a code.
My issue begin when Postman try to exchange this code on my authorization serveur.
The body of the Postman call is the follow one :
grant_type: “authorization_code”,
code: “549d2676-1b80-4219-8f2c-e3a1629b38c5”,
redirect_uri: “”,
client_id: “XXXX”
But my Identity provider only accept this type of body :
grant_type: “authorization_code”,
code: “549d2676-1b80-4219-8f2c-e3a1629b38c5”,
redirect_uri: “”,

So I always receive on error 400 bad request.

I want to know if it’s possible to change the parameter of the code exchange call (/access_token) ?
Or if it’s not, if I can just retrieve the code and made the “/access_token” call alone ?

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards

Hi, Welcome in community :slight_smile:
From my experience I use standalone request to AUTH server. With all required headers/body.
Those built In authorization options are good for basic OAuth usage and I made it work only once for products that I had worked.
OAuth standard is well documented and fetching token by simple POST is try and err path if you are doing it first time.

So. Create a POST to that URL, In Headers you may or not need basic auth. In content type you should add


and body depending from implementation and grant_type should at least got those 3 key-value pairs as you posted.

Then in Tests tab add simple

pm.test("Status code is 200", function () {;

if ( {
    var jsonData = pm.response.json();
    pm.collectionVariables.set("token_auth", jsonData.access_token);

and on collection level in Auth tab choose bearer token with your’ variable
