    I am attempting to request an authentication token. I have my url request setup with my client ID and scope. When I supply my credentials it provides me a code via the localhost page. From there I supply that token along with my clientID, client secret, the code provided my the URL, and the grant type as shown via the python example on the API docs. I run the POST request and that is the response that I receive.

    Hello @gatewaychurch,

    The temporary code expires after 30 seconds of being issued. You need to do the exchange before it gets expired.

    @Alex Lugo I am running the POST call within the 30 second window.

    @Alex Lugo and @Adrian Samuel, Can someone assist with this? Is there another method to get developer support, because this method has been pretty limited?

    @gatewaychurch, this is the only medium for this conversation.

    Could you try again and see if anything has changed?

    Have you checked that you did indeed copy the clientID correctly?

    If you're still getting the same error, please PM me with your details
