    I don't know if there is a "best" architecture for making the DRS API calls. In theory, your smart device can make the calls, as it (a) will have wifi/internet access and (b) will be connected to the sensors and will know when reordering needs to happen. You'll just need to get the refresh_token to your device from the web server. You could manually update the refresh token on the smart device in a text file (not a great long-term solution, but gets the job done), or you can build some sort of API on the device that is called when the refresh token is obtained on the web server.

    I am actually going a different route. My solution will be managed within AWS. The smart device will send a status to an AWS function (via AWS IoT to an AWS Lambda Function) which will trigger reordering, etc. I designed the solution that way because I am encouraging others to build similar devices, and did not want to burden them with the DRS setup.

    So, at the end of the day, you're probably ok with the logic on the device, or in a centralized location (like your web server).

    That is correct; I am not passing a code_verifier. I am passing a "state" variable - which in my example is the same as my serial number (my serial number is a UUID).
