It's not working now. this is my code

url = "https://login.microsoftonline.com/{TID}/oauth2/token".format( TID=MYTID, )
data = requests.post(url, data={ 'client_id': CLIENT_ID, 'client_secret': my_secrete, 'code': token, 'grant_type': 'authorization_code', "redirect_uri": REDIRECT_URI, 'resource': APPID_URI, })

    Hello @Huang Chao ,

    This behavior is to be expected when your application reuses authorization codes to get tokens. I would recommend you to revisit your code and see if your application reuses code.

    If your app reuses authorization codes to get tokens for multiple resources, we recommend that you use the code to get a refresh token, and then use that refresh token to acquire additional tokens for other resources. Authorization codes can only be used once, but refresh tokens can be used multiple times across multiple resources. Any new app that attempts to reuse an authentication code during the OAuth code flow will get an invalid_grant error AADSTS54005: OAuth2 Authorization code was already redeemed.

    For more information, read this (article](https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/develop/reference-breaking-changes#authorization-codes-can-no-longer-be-reused)

    Hi @Huang Chao

    Since you mentioned that app has been working since last two years, one possible issue could be secret has expired. Please note down the client id, now navigate to Azure AD - App registration - search for the application (you can enter the copied client id). Once you find the application select the application - select certificate & Secret - under client secret see if the secret has expired. If yes then create a new secret and update your configuration.

    I hope this helps.

    Running into the same error - we are not reusing the code, but have started seeing this error today. This worked fine previously. Have also confirmed that our secret has not expired.
