Custom Connector Token Refresh?

I've created a cusom connector to Salesforce (the 'Premium' Flow connector doesn't support a couple API features I need). It works fine, but stops working after 4 hours, which is the session timeout setting for our Salesforce org. I need my connector to get a refresh token but I'm not sure how to do it. Has anyone gotten a Flow custom connector access token refresh from Salesforce working?

Hi @manuelstgomes,

 

I'll post this in case it helps anyone else. I finally gave up with my custom connector and just make direct HTTP requests. I post my client_id, client_secret, username, and password (for Salesforce, that's password+token) to their token endpoint. The return contains an access_token that I store in a variable and use in the header of my subsequent API requests. This avoids the token refresh issue I was having and is more flexible (I can make any number of different API calls via HTTP, whereas if I used a custom connector I would have had to define them each as unique actions).
