3rd party oauth provider setup should allow to get token automatically

Currently we use datapower manually to grab 3rd party oauth tokens.  I went into APIC to add that same 3rd party oauth provider hoping to retrieve an access token from the 3rd party as I do with Native OAUTH providers.  Come to find out, the token url that you set in the 3rd party oauth provider doesn't seem to be used at all.  Only allows for introspection from the third party oauth proivder to protect an API.

I don't understand this logic, I would like APIC to retrieve the token or even allow me to go and grab the token through the OAUTH provider that I setup, cache the token, handle it.  

At this point we have to manually code all this, go grab the token, cache it (set the TTL manually), then call the 3rd party API that is protected by their OAUTH provider.  It would be nice to have our external partner OAUTH providers listed neatly and setup with the credentials needed.

    Hi , Can you please give us additional details on usecase? Just want to make sure you understand GW is not an OAuth client in the third party OAuth scenario.
