Hi I am trying to build an application where users can authenticate using facebook login from my app. I would then fetch their ad accounts and create facebook marketing source connections for each ad account on airbyte and stream their data for drawing insights on their ads data.
I am aware that facebook doesn’t have concept of refresh token. But access tokens expire in 60 days. How do i make sure the token doesn’t expire?
How do i get a token that never expires and provides continuous access to the data? Facebook mentions that my app need to have a flow to re-authorize the access. Is there any other work around?
System User access token that is fetched from Facebook can only be fetched per business and has access at Business Account level but not User level. So System User Access Token is not a way to go for me.
Hello there! You are receiving this message because none of your fellow community members has stepped in to respond to your topic post. (If you are a community member and you are reading this response, feel free to jump in if you have the answer!) As a result, the Community Assistance Team has been made aware of this topic and will be investigating and responding as quickly as possible.
Some important considerations that will help your to get your issue solved faster:
- It is best to use our topic creation template; if you haven’t yet, we recommend posting a followup with the requested information. With that information the team will be able to more quickly search for similar issues with connectors and the platform and troubleshoot more quickly your specific question or problem.
- Make sure to upload the complete log file; a common investigation roadblock is that sometimes the error for the issue happens well before the problem is surfaced to the user, and so having the tail of the log is less useful than having the whole log to scan through.
- Be as descriptive and specific as possible; when investigating it is extremely valuable to know what steps were taken to encounter the issue, what version of connector / platform / Java / Python / docker / k8s was used, etc. The more context supplied, the quicker the investigation can start on your topic and the faster we can drive towards an answer.
- We in the Community Assistance Team are glad you’ve made yourself part of our community, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and resolve the problems as quickly as possible. Expect to hear from a specific team member as soon as possible.
Thank you for your time and attention.

Hi @psura, unfortunately this is not currently possible and I don’t see any workarounds!
