Change organization grant

The change organization grant has been specifically designed for external applications that allow their users to switch between multiple organizations.
When the application has received an access token based on user credentials, the same access token can be used as the user’s identity to get new access tokens for organizations that the user has access to.
The response of this call is a new Access (and Refresh) token based on the user's permissions within the new organization. If the user is not authorized in this organization, an error is returned.
