Can't get access token with nextjs-auth0 with the audience set

I’m trying to use an access token generated by the getAccessToken function but for some reason its returning a jwt without a payload

Here’s my handler code

// app/api/auth/[auth0]/route.js
import { handleAuth, handleLogin } from '@auth0/nextjs-auth0';

export const GET = handleAuth({
    login: handleLogin({
        authorizationParams: {
            audience: '', // or AUTH0_AUDIENCE
            // Add the `offline_access` scope to also get a Refresh Token
            scope: 'openid profile email offline_access read:products' // or AUTH0_SCOPE

And heres where I want to consume it

import { getAccessToken, getSession } from '@auth0/nextjs-auth0';

export async function POST(req) {
    const { accessToken } = await getAccessToken({
        scopes: ["offline_access"]
    const options = {
        headers: { Authorization: `Bearer ${accessToken}` },
        method: "POST"
    const url = `${process.env.LMS_URL}/login_refresh`
    let loginResponse = await fetch(url, options)
    return loginResponse

For some reason the jwt has no payload, I also made sure that I was passing the audience when logging in

sorry for the tags, I can’t seem to find the proper tags for the help board

Hey @diego.diaz !

You shouldn’t be passing the /userinfo url as an audience, it will automatically be added to access tokens. I believe with the current set up the authorization server is just ignoring the audience param altogether so you’re receiving an opaque token, thus the empty payload.

You’ll want to pass in the identifier/audience of your API you registered in Auth0 instead.

More on the audience param can be found here:

Aside from that, everything looks good!
