Create a JWT

You need to pass a JSON web token (JWT) in the header or query parameter of your request before accessing IoT Edge Connect.

How to

  1. Use a trusted tool for generating the JWTs in accordance to the RFC 7519 standard.
    The https://jwt.io/ portal is recommended.
  2. Choose the RS256 algorithm.
  3. In Payload, enter your client id and authorization groups claim in the JWT behavior.
    Client ID claim can be anything and the authorization groups claim in the JWT behavior should be the name of group which you defined in the ACL configuration at IoT Edge Connect configuration.
  4. Use the key pair you’ve created in Create a JWT key collection.
  5. Go to the Akamai JWT configuration tool and configure the public key.
  6. Use the private key to generate a JWT.
