No refresh token (Google Cloud OAuth2)

Describe the problem/error/question

Hi I am having a similar issue as linked with the google cloud scope. So using a custom http request node…

I think my tokens last an hour then I have to sign in with the credentials again.

Looked around the forum but couldn’t get a definitive answer

-access_type=offline is set

-app is published

-body or head auth didnt make a difference

Thank you


What is the error message (if any)?

ERROR: No refresh token

Hey @ohmikegot,

Can you share the settings you have used for the generic credential? If needed you can find we set here: n8n/packages/nodes-base/credentials/GoogleOAuth2Api.credentials.ts at master · n8n-io/n8n · GitHub

Thanks for a quick reply. I appreciate n8n and all the help. I think you gave me an idea. I basically made a generic oAuth2 for cloud because I read that cloud isn’t supported as a scope.

*I hid clientid

And it didnt refresh.

Yesterday I remade with Google OAuth2 credentialsfrom n8n and added cloud-platform as a scope anyway and it seems like it’s okay and working .

What did I do wrong with the generic one? Screenshot attached

The access token url we use is and for the authURI we use access_type=offline&prompt=consent other than that assuming you are using body as the type it should be good.

Remade with Google OAuth2 credentials from n8n (rather than custom) and added cloud-platform as a scope. Also @Jon provided a direct solution to my question. Thank you
