OAuth::getAccessTokenFetch an access token


public array OAuth::getAccessToken ( string $access_token_url [, string $auth_session_handle [, string $verifier_token ]] )

Fetch an access token, secret and any additional response parameters from the service provider.



URL to the access token API.


Authorization session handle, this parameter does not have any citation in the core OAuth 1.0 specification but may be implemented by large providers. » See ScalableOAuth for more information.


For service providers which support 1.0a, a verifier_token must be passed while exchanging the request token for the access token. If the verifier_token is present in $_GET or $_POST it is passed automatically and the caller does not need to specify a verifier_token (usually if the access token is exchanged at the oauth_callback URL). » See ScalableOAuth for more information.

Return Values

Returns an array containing the parsed OAuth response on success or FALSE on failure.


Version Description
1.0.0 Previously returned NULL on failure, instead of FALSE.
0.99.9 The verifier_token parameter was added


Example #1 OAuth::getAccessToken() example

try {
$access_token_info $oauth->getAccessToken("");
$access_token_info)) {
    } else {
"Failed fetching access token, response was: " $oauth->getLastResponse();
} catch(
OAuthException $E) {
"Response: "$E->lastResponse "\n";

The above example will output something similar to:

    [oauth_token] => some_token
