EGI Check-in OpenID Provider Migration

As of July 2022, we are migrating EGI Check-in OpenID Provider to a new Authorisation Server, as a result the Refresh Tokens, issued by the legacy Authorisation Server, will not be accepted by the new one and you won’t be able to generate new Access Tokens with them. In this case you need to create a new Refresh Token using the environment-specific EGI Check-in Token Portal, which is integrated with the new EGI Check-in OpenID Provider. In the following table you can find the URLs of the various instances:
