Authenticates with the server, providing an access token sourced from an external Authorisation Server such as OAuth. You can also perform this operation by passing the HTTP Authorization header, with Provider as the Scheme and AccessToken as the Token. In this case, use QueryIdentify to retrieve the user details.

This action is also used to pass updated credentials when an authority would expire, using a Refresh Token.
