Revoking an OAuth 2 token

This example uses curl to illustrate how to revoke an OAuth 2 token. You might revoke a token when you are done using it and you want to free up any outstanding resources, such as vCenter Server sessions.

The following curl command revokes an OAuth 2 token:

curl -k https://[host]/api/oauth/revoke -H "Authorization: Bearer


  • host is the IP address of the Virtual Controller.

You must supply the -kswitch due to the use of self-signed certificates. You can import these certificates into your local certificate store.

The call returns HTTP status 200 without any body.
