POST oauth2/invalidate_token

Allows a registered application to revoke an issued OAuth 2 Bearer Token by presenting its client credentials. Once a Bearer Token has been invalidated, new creation attempts will yield a different Bearer Token and usage of the invalidated token will no longer be allowed.
