I have a SharePoint clientId and clientSecret. Is it possible to obtain an access token for On-premises SharePoint through a Windows service?

what should be the API end point to get the access token?

    Hi @Shankar, Bhukya,

    SharePoint Server is different with SharePoint Online, there is no tenant id for a SharePoint Server site. We are unable to get access token as SharePoint Online.

    As a workaround, we could use NTLM Authothorization to access SharePoint Rest api. You could refer to the steps in following issue similar with yours
