JSON Web Token
Generate dynamic JSON Web Tokens from Matrix to integrate with services that implement JWT authentication.
JSON Web Token (JWT) is an open standard (RFC 7519) that defines a compact and self-contained way for securely transmitting information between parties as a JSON object. This information can be verified and trusted because it is digitally signed. JWTs can be signed using a secret (with the HMAC algorithm) or a public/private key pair using RSA or ECDSA.
The JSON Web Token (JWT) extension for Squiz Matrix lets you generate dynamic JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) from Matrix. The tokens can be used to integrate with third-party services and platforms that implement JWT authentication.
Once the extension is installed, you can create new JWTs using the asset tree.
On the details screen you can configure a secret, payload, and expiry time on the token, which together generates the JSON Web Token when viewing it on the frontend.
Please refer to the extension's official documentation for information on how to install it.
