 var grant_type = "";
 var refresh_token = "";

wrikeApiControllers.controller('AccessToken', ['$scope', '$http',
  function($scope, $http) {
   $http.post('https://www.wrike.com/oauth2/token?client_id='+client_id+'&client_secret='+client_secret+'&grant_type='+ grant_type +'&refresh_token='+refresh_token).

      });

  }]);  


var phonecatApp = angular.module('phonecatApp', [

]);

phonecatApp.config(['$routeProvider',
  function($routeProvider) {
    $routeProvider.
      when('/access', {
        templateUrl: 'display-access-token.html',
        controller: 'AccessToken'
      }).
      otherwise({
        redirectTo: '/access'
      });
  }]);


</script>
</head>
<body>

  <div ng-view></div>

</body>
</html>

and this is my display-access-token.html

      <ul >
    <div ng-repeat="access in response"  class="thumbnail">
      <p>{{response.access_token}}</p>
      <p>{{response.token_type}}</p>
      <p>{{response.expires_in}}</p>
      <p>{{response.refresh_token}}</p>
    </div>
  </ul>

when I accessing wrike using my web browser or using Chrome extension postman I get response after posting like this

    {
    "access_token": "UQldFEZJwifB3PEJWAsvasv3js1uoLk1GCq5ppMGgUijoz8gP46tBxeBd5ud51VGLFNlGjQw-N-N",
    "token_type": "bearer",
    "expires_in": 3599,
    "refresh_token": "8yRHuuzeeEsqE4o0Y1lJe02uhqgGlalxnl798aksCzFn7WxjEtS4iveFhBjEG349w7pDFm3m1sY-A-N"
}

but when I am using AngularJS i can't get response POST is successful but I don't see response. I get this message in web browser "Json.parse unexpected end of data at line 1 column 1 of the json data"

Any help please ? Thanks

Solution

This piece of code is wrong

<div ng-repeat="access in response"  class="thumbnail">
  <p>{{response.access_token}}</p>
  <p>{{response.token_type}}</p>
  <p>{{response.expires_in}}</p>
  <p>{{response.refresh_token}}</p>
</div>

Because you're iterating over the array "response" and for each iteration you have an "access" object, so inside each 'p' element you have to use "access" not "response", like this:

<div ng-repeat="access in response"  class="thumbnail">
  <p>{{access.access_token}}</p>
  <p>{{access.token_type}}</p>
  <p>{{access.expires_in}}</p>
  <p>{{access.refresh_token}}</p>
</div>

Otherwise, if the expected data is not an array, you should not use ng-repeat but simply use the response object

I don't know if it helps, but have you tried enabling cors?

$httpProvider.defaults.useXDomain = true;
$httpProvider.defaults.withCredentials = false;
delete $httpProvider.defaults.headers.common["X-Requested-With"];
$httpProvider.defaults.headers.common["Accept"] = "application/json";
$httpProvider.defaults.headers.common["Content-Type"] = "application/json";

I had the same problem when I migrated from version V1.2 to V1.4 AngularJS. In my server (JAX-RS), I produced JSON type in annotation and I put on a String in response. I changed the Produces(MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON) by Produces( MediaType.TEXT_PLAIN). AngularJS wanted a JSON format but he received a String.
