WebService::GoogleAPI::Client::AccessToken - A small class for bundling user and scopes with a token


version 0.24_001


  my $token = $gapi->get_access_token # returns this class
  # {
  #   token   => '...',
  #   user    => 'the-user-that-it's-for',
  #   scopes  => [ 'the', 'scopes', 'that', 'its', 'for' ]
  # }
  my $res = ... # any api call here
  $res->{_token} # the token the call was made with

This is a simple class which contains the data related to a Google Cloud access token that bundles the related user and scopes.

It overloads stringification so that interpolating it in, say an auth header, will return just the token.

This is for introspection purposes, so if something goes wrong, you can check the response from your request and check the _token hash key on that object. Note that this is subject to change in future versions (there's probably a saner way to do this).
