How to get an access_token from an id_token?

How to get an access_token if I only have an id_token, using Auth0 API?

My user is already authenticated, has received an id_token and a token back from Auth0 server, but no access_token.

Hi @ced

You can either get the access token at the same time you get the ID token, or you can use silent authentication to get the access token: https://auth0.com/docs/authorization/configure-silent-authentication

If I use Universal Login, I only receive an id_token. Is it possible for Universal login to also return an access_token, or do I have to use silent authentication after the universal login?

Apparently the token received is actually an access_token.

Glad you have eventually figured it out!
