FYI, Facebook has 2 types of tokens:
* short lived..usually last for hours
* long lived usually lasts for 60 days
As Marek pointed out, token refreshes require a browser redirect for
Facebook. Knowing that, a REST service is not going to be able to
refresh a facebook token. Let's take this further with an example.
You have a "Contact-List" service that obtains a list of contacts from a
to display a list of contacts. The "Contact-List" service has to know
the token and the social provider type.
facebook tokens. How would that even work? It would have to be done

I think you are making our design more complex or less performant than
it needs to be. I don't want a specific endpoint just to refresh a
token for a specific broker. We're also going to want to embed nested
access tokens for specific keycloak nested application invocations. I
don't want a separate REST service just for that too.
I also want nested REST invocations to work without having to invoke on
the auth server for every request. The access token should have
everything the application needs so that it can reduce traffic with the
server. What if a stateless, bearer-only REST services needs the
be entirely bearer-only stateless REST services.
I don't want to require adapter specific configuration.
I the vast majority of cases, I think facebook token refreshing can be
handled automatically by the adapter and the auth-server-side configured
token policies. We can make the facebook token policy have different
configuration options to:
* never to refresh the token
* modify the access token's expiration to sync with the facebook one.
We could add a "scope" parameter to refreshToken endpoint to give a hint
to the facebook token policy on whether it needs to refresh or not.
Finally, every refreshAccessToken invocation gives the auth-server the
opportunity to recheck revocation policies and upgrade/downgrade the
user's and application's permissions.
