using OAuth2.ClientCredentials;
  1. Use below code to retrieve Access Token
// 1. Declare pre-requisites
string tokenEndpoint = "";
string clientId = "your_client_id";
string clientSecret = "your_client_secret";

// 2. Create AuthRequest object
AuthRequest authRequest = new AuthRequest(clientId, clientSecret);

// 3. Create ClientCredential object
ClientCredential defaultClientCredential = new ClientCredential(tokenEndpoint, authRequest);

// 4. Obtain access token in auth response 
AuthResponse authResponse = defaultClientCredential.GetToken().Result;
