How to add scopes to Xero token

Started by Tony Carter -   in API Authentication

Hi,

I had a Web App to extract some reports such as Balance Sheet and P&L using machine to machine connection. I've built a token using xoauth and Insomnia, saved it in a database and kept refreshing it at least once every two months so I don't have to manually authorise the connection. At the time of configuration I had the following scopes configured:
openid
offline_access
accounting.reports.read

Now I need to pull out accounts and need the following scopes in addition to the above:
accounting.settings
accounting.settings.read

How can I do this without re-doing all the work of generating the tokens?

Thanks.
Figured it out. I had to disconnect the app from the entity. Create new token with new scopes and save it to the database.
