How long does OAuth token expire on BitBucket Server (Stash)

I followed this article and successfully setup the OAuth on my local BitBucket Server (Stash) instance.


I am wondering how long does each OAuth token expire? or does it just last forever?

Hi Mengwei, our access tokens expire in one hour. When this happens you'll get 401 responses. 

Most access token grant response, therefore, include a refresh token that can then be used to generate a new access token, without the need for end user participation. You can find this information at Oauth on Bitbucket Cloud.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Best regards,


@Ana Retamal OrtizHey Ana, thanks for the reply. Just want to double confirm that we are not using the OAuth 2.0 on BitBucket Cloud, but the OAuth 1.0 on private BitBucket Server. Does the expiration time still apply?
