Create JWT

JWT content is compiled by JWTBuilder, which is divided into two parts: JWTHeader and Claims. These two parts are filled separately. JWT or JWS Token String is obtained eventually according to whether the package is signed or not.


JWTBuilder *builder = DIDDocument_GetJwtBuilder(doc);
  	//error operation

JWTBuilder *DIDDocument_GetJwtBuilder(DIDDocument *document);

To gain a better understanding, this method is introduced in JWT module. DID Document provides a method to create JWTBuilder and get the JWT compilation mode.

void JWTBuilder_Destroy(JWTBuilder *builder);

JWTBuilder object needs to be destroyed after using.

bool JWTBuilder_SetHeader(
        JWTBuilder *builder,
        const char *attr, const char *value);

This method adds elements in the header of JWT, but the default attributes “alg” and “kid” cannot be added, otherwise it will fail.

bool JWTBuilder_SetClaim(
        JWTBuilder *builder,
        const char *key, const char *value);

This method adds the elements of Claims in JWT. If the value type of the added elements is not string, you can also choose JWT Builder _ SetClaimwithJSON, JWT Builder _ SetClaimwithIntegar and JWTBuilder_SetClaimWithBoolean. Refer to the API documentation for specific methods.

bool JWTBuilder_SetSubject(JWTBuilder *builder, const char *subject);

This method sets the “sub” attribute, and SDK provides some fixed attribute settings, which can be found in the API document.

int JWTBuilder_Sign(
        JWTBuilder *builder,
        DIDURL *keyid,
        const char *storepass)

This method signs JWTBuilder content and generates JWS string.

Keyid is the Authentication Key in DID Document that created JWTBuilder.

Keyid is the DID Document that created JWTBuilder.

const char *JWTBuilder_Compact(JWTBuilder *builder);

This method encapsulates JWTBuilder content and generates JWT string. Attention: the return value string needs to be released after being used.

int JWTBuilder_Reset(JWTBuilder *builder);

Reset the header and body, except “alg,” “kid,” and “iss.”
