Ringcentral returns OAU-153 response


We have implemented an implicit grant flow in our login authorization flow. However we have come across a problem when trying to logout. (We assume this is also the problem at other platform(). functions). For that function we use the following code:

function logout() {
        .then(function (res) {
            _isLoggedIn = false;
            console.log('rcClient logged out');
            var onLogout = handlers["onLogout"];
        .catch(function (res) {
            console.log('An error occurred while logging out rcClient');

The catch catches an error with the following message: "Failed to execute 'fetch' on 'Window': Cannot construct a Request with a Request object that has already been used."

The API response is :

  "error" : "invalid_client",
  "errors" : [ {
    "errorCode" : "OAU-153",
    "message" : "Invalid client: ${client_id}"
  } ],
  "error_description" : "Invalid client: ${client_id}"

WE cannot pinpoint why it would say it is an invalid client_id because we can use other apicalls before the logout just fine.

I will add also the way we login to be complete in my information:

function show3LeggedLogin() {
    redirectUri = decodeURIComponent(window.location.href.split('rcclient.html', 1) + 'callback.html');
    console.log('Redirect uri: ', redirectUri);
    rcsdk = new SDK({
        appKey: appKey,
        server: server,
        redirectUri: redirectUri
    platform = rcsdk.platform();
    var loginUrl = platform.loginUrl({ implicit: true });
        .loginWindow({ url: loginUrl }) // this method also allows to supply more options to control window position
        .then(function (loginOptions) {
            return platform.login(loginOptions);
        .then(function (res) {
            // Login success
            return postLogin();
        .catch(function (e) {
            // Login failed
            console.error(e.stack || e);
            var handleLoginFailed = handlers["loginFailed"];

I hope you can help us or at least steer us in the right direction to solve this. If you need more information please say so!

With kind regards,

Just a quick check. Can you double check the rcsdk.platform() instance inside the logout function to see if it is instantiated? I guessed the rcsdk is a global variable but not sure how you implemented it.
