Trying to extend Facebook oauth token using Koala gem

In reference to:

http://rubydoc.info/github/arsduo/koala/master/Koala/Facebook/GraphAPIMethods#graph_call-instance_method

http://developers.facebook.com/roadmap/offline-access-removal/#extend_token


My code looks something like this:

fb = Koala::Facebook::API.new(access_token)
fb.graph_call("/oauth/access_token", {"client_id" => app_id, "client_secret" => app_secret, "grant_type" => "fb_exchange_token", "fb_exchange_token" => access_token })

Although the return value contains the extended token but it is throwing MultiJson::DecodeError

MultiJson::DecodeError: 387: unexpected token at 'access_token=long-lived_token&expires=5184000]'

I suspect the ending ] that is causing the error. Not sure if this is a Facebook error or mis-handling on my part. Appreciate if someone could help me out. Thank!


I also tried using Net::HTTP.get(uri) instead. But got the below error.

Not sure if it's a firewall or something?

Use the OAuth exchange_access_token_info method:

oauth = Koala::Facebook::OAuth.new("consumer_token", "consumer_secret")
oauth.exchange_access_token_info("auth_token")

P.S. I also got the error you did doing it your way. The problem is that Koala expects the body of the response to be in JSON format, but in this special case it's actually name/value pairs in URL (query string) format, e.g.:

access_token=[...]&expires=[...]

Hudson Build-Time Trend Plugin?

jenkins continuous-integration hudson jenkins-plugins

Is there a plugin which would allow me to create a "trend" graph for a hudson build which shows the build time for that project?
