Previewing the JSON Web Token profile


Preview the JSON Web Token that is generated from the token profile instance to view all the claims and headers in the token. You can also view the values that are mapped from the clipboard and resolved at run time. The preview function is useful for debugging. For example, if a token is unexpectedly rejected, you can view the entire content of the token to determine the cause.

If the token profile is configured for generating a signed JWT, then the signature generated using the configured JSON Web Algorithm can be viewed. Also, in the Encoded section, you can see the encoded compact JWT.

  1. In the navigation panel, click Records Security Token Profile .

  2. Click the token profile that you want to preview.

  3. On the Generation tab, click Preview.

  • Token profile data instance

    Create a JSON Web Token (JWT) profile data instance to confirm a user's identity between two different processes. JSON Web Token (JWT) is an open standard that defines a compact and self-contained method to securely exchange information between different parties as a JSON object. For example, the token can contain information about a user that can be used by another party to validate the identity of the user.

  • Creating a token profile

    Use a JSON Web Token (JWT) to exchange information securely between two different parties. For example, a JWT can carry information about a user that can be used by another party to authenticate the identity of the user.
