Refreshing an access token without manual input

Hello.

I am trying to make an integration between Clover and a rewards system. This is a web-based application that uses the Clover RESTful API.

With many other OAuth 2.0 flows there is the concept of a "refresh token" that allows you to get a new access token without forcing manual intervention of going through the OAuth2.0 process. It doesn't seem like Clover has a refresh token. Is it possible to renew a Clover access token using the web API without human intervention?

My goal is to have a system that can maintain an access token without someone needing to intervene.

Unfortunately, OAuth refresh tokens are not currently supported.

So ultimately human intervention is required at this time for refreshing an OAuth API token?

That is correct.

Is there any chance that OAuth refresh tokens will be supported soon? I am developing a financial reporting software and asking a client to refresh a hundred mid's manually once a year is not ideal.
