Renews an OAuth access token before it expires.

OAuth access tokens besides your application's personal access token expire after 30 days. You can also renew expired tokens within 15 days of their expiration. You cannot renew an access token that has been expired for more than 15 days. Instead, the associated user must recomplete the OAuth flow from the beginning.

Important: The Authorization header for this endpoint must have the following format:

Authorization: Client APPLICATION_SECRET

Replace APPLICATION_SECRET with the application secret on the Credentials page in the Developer Dashboard.
