curl -i -X POST " https://platform.devtest.ringcentral.com/restapi/oauth/token"; \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
-u "appId:appSecret" \
-d "username=username&password=password&extension=&grant_type=password"

Above is what I have tested

I think what you posted is correct. Because it is the same as mine.
