OAuth expiration time

Hello there!


To give some context of what I'm trying to do, I have a python framework which I install via pypi with pip install git+<repo-link>,  the repo that I'm using is private, and, unfortunately, it needs to remain that way. 

I though of doing with SSH, but that would make my life a little bit harder.

So I tried to create a OAuth2 consumer for giving a link to clone the framework, via the OAuth token.  The problem is that, the token have a expiration time of 1 hour.

I was wondering if I can create a non-expiring OAuth token, or if there is a better way to complete that pypi flow with a private repo.

Thank you.

Hi Rodrigo, our access tokens expire in one hour. Most access token include a refresh token that can then be used to generate a new access token, without the need for end user participation:

$ curl -X POST -u "client_id:secret"
  https://bitbucket.org/site/oauth2/access_token \
  -d grant_type=refresh_token -d refresh_token={refresh_token} This is documented at 

This is documented at Oauth on Bitbucket Cloud.

Hope that helps!
