Refresh a User's Authentication Token without the Validic User ID

Last Updated: Feb 27, 2018 03:34PM EST
Q: If I have lost my user's Validic ID and only kept the user's unique identification when I provisioned him to Validic, can I still refresh my user's authentication token or user's access token?

Yes. Using several Validic API calls, you are able to refresh a user's authentication token even if you only have your user's UID as a reference. The first problem you need to solve is getting your user's Validic User ID. Please refer to the article Retrieving a Mapping of Validic User IDs with UIDs to do this.

The response will only include the user's Validic User ID, but that will enable you to retrieve a new User Authentication Token for your user with the refresh_token.json API call:
    "code": 200,
    "message": "Ok",
    "user": {
        "id_": "51552cd7fded0807c4000017",
        "uid": "1234567890",
        "authentication_token": "uXek7RK2wUnm84BJRv5Q"
This new authentication_token will replace the user's previously assigned token.
